In this paper, the design methodology of a flat reflector composed with standard dielectric material and using transformation electromagnetics (TE) is presented. First, the mathematical relation between a flat reflector and a parabolic one is described. The TE principle is then described. Some realization issues are highlighted, leading to approximations and compromises in order to design a more realistic structure. In this way, a flat reflector made only with standard dielectric materials is presented, using an original method to achieve the desired spatial permittivity variation. The simulation results of different configurations for the flat reflector are presented and compared to classical solutions in order to prove the thickness reduction and the improvement of radiation characteristics in terms of gain and half-power beamwidth.
