This paper is the second part of our study that investigates using glass dielectric resonator antennas (DRAs) as light covers. To begin, designs of dual-band hemispherical DRAs are investigated for the first time. Both broadside and omnidirectional dual-band DRAs are included in the study. The former makes use of the broadside TE111 and TE112 modes of a hollow hemispherical DRA, whereas the latter utilizes the endfire TM101 and TM103 modes of a solid hemispherical DRA. New design formulas that determine the radii of the two dual-band hemispherical DRAs are found. To demonstrate the usefulness of the formulas, two dual-band hemispherical DRAs for WLAN/WiMAX applications were designed and fabricated using K9 glass. ANSYS HFSS was used to simulate the DRAs, and the results agree reasonably well with our measurements. Results of using the DRAs as light covers are reported.
