Abstract.  The problem of constructing of millimeter band antennas, based on dielectric waveguide  structures,  is  considered. For the construction of antennas with radiation polarized in the plane perpendicular to the waveguide axis, the new type of linear antenna containing metal pins on the side walls of the grooved dielectric waveguide is offered. The main disadvantage of these antennas is revealed, which consists in the presence of cross-polarized radiation in directions close to the axis of the waveguide. A new modification of the antenna with polarization in the transverse plane, made in the form of a closed groove waveguide with a longitudinal slot in the upper wall, is proposed. The data of electrodynamic modeling are presented, confirming the operability of the proposed antennas.

Key words: millimeter waveband, antenna  array, dielectric waveguide,  leaky wave  antenna,  cross polarization, electrodynamics modeling.
