A novel portable dielectric resonator antenna (DRA) design with broadside radiation is presented for ultrawideband wireless applications and narrow pulse sensor for breast cancer detections. The antenna provides broadside radiation. By using a solid rectangular dielectric resonator mounted on a vertical ground plane edge, the total antenna volume is considered to be less than that with a perpendicular ground plane. A wide impedance matching bandwidth is achieved. In addition, a modified version of the rectangular dielectric resonator antenna, which has two dielectric pieces removed to have an A-shaped resonator, provides wider impedance matching bandwidth of around 93% with much better broadside radiation characteristics and lighter weight is also considered. Comparison between the two antennas is presented with parametric study. The modified antenna is built and tested and very good agreement between computed and measured results is obtained.
