Reflectarray antennas composed of rectangular grooves with sub-wavelength holes on a metal plate are designed for millimeter-wave regions. All depths of multiple grooves in the metal reflectarray are elaborately manipulated for a high-gain reflector. A sub-wavelength hole in each groove reduces the mass of the reflectarray antenna, which rarely affects the re-radiated millimeter-wave filed from the groove. In this paper, we have demonstrated light high-gain reflectarray antennas and achieved a
