Dielectric resonator antennas (DRA??s) excited by a narrow-slot aperture in a conducting ground plane are analyzed using a numerical technique based upon a surface-integral equation formulation for bodies of revolution (BOR's) coupled to non-BOR geometries. An efficient matrix-solution algorithm, together with a simple microstrip transmission-line model or a delta-source model are used to comnute the antenna inmt impedance. Input impedances obtained with this technique show favorable agreement to those obtained via another numerical technique, as well as to those obtained by measurement.
