An iterative approach to determine the refractive index of 3D printed 60GHz PLA lenses

Creator/Principal investigator(s):

Pererik Andreasson - Halmstad University orcid

Description:

This study is a part of the research project eMC-Hammer. It describes an iterative approach to determine quasi-optical properties of standard 3D printer filament material to, in an inexpensive and fast way, construct focusing lenses for millimetre wave systems. Results from three lenses with different focal lengths are shown and discussed. The real part of the permittivity at 60GHz for polylactic acid (PLA) is in this paper determined to be er=2.74.

Purpose:

The purpose with the study is to validate an iterative, low cost, method of determining the refractive index of 3D printed lenses, where otherwise expensive equipment would be needed, such as S-parameter measurements using a vector network analyzer.
