A simple analysis of thin annular-ring microstrip antennas (AR-MSA), along with a design technique that yields the optimum ring dimensions which maximises the radiation efficiency and the bandwidth, is presented in this paper. Using the cavity model, exact closed form solutions for the radiation fields are derived. The antenna fields distribution, resonance dimensions, radiation patterns, directivity, radiation conductance, quality factor and bandwidth are investigated for the different TMnm modes. AR-MSAs operated at the high order TMn2 modes are found to have better radiation properties and broader bandwidths than the corresponding disk-MSAs. A design table for the optimum ring dimensions for different types of the dielectric substrate material is also given in the paper.
