On contrary to a conventional PRS, we introduce the tapered partially reflective surface (TPRS). TPRS is an unequally spaced PRS with smaller element spacing on the central region than on the edge region. Usually, amplitude of reflection coefficient from a PRS depends on its element spacing. Therefore, difference in reflection coefficient from the central and from the edge regions is expected for the TPRS. It is studied that the said difference can provide a substantial tapering effect.
Evidence of the tapering effect is that the average side lobes levels of TPRS are lower than those of PRS. For TPRS using patches as elements, this side lobe reduction is apparent over wide range of beam directions. For dipoles, side lobe reduction is restricted near main beam directions. The dipole array is considered to be easily influenced by the diffraction pattern so that the reduction in side lobe levels is not obvious as expected.
One advantage took from the reduction in side lobe levels is that we can further increase the gain from an optimized PRS. In one example, we can have a gain of 23dBi from a TPRS on contrast to 21.8dBi from a PRS though the two antennas are of equal size.
