    A two-arm power spiral antenna with inherently low dispersion is proposed. Analytical, computational, and experimental steps are taken to demonstrate its superior time domain performance. When compared with conventional Archimedean and equiangular spirals, up to 40% improved fidelity factor and pulse compression are achieved. It is, however also shown that the power spiral's mid and high band axia... View full abstract»

    A radial line slot antenna (RLSA) with a quasi-elliptical aperture to create an elliptical beam is discussed in this paper. A simple feeding structure consisting of a coaxial feeder and two parasitic pins is designed to produce the feed pattern required for uniform illumination over the aperture. The slot length distribution in the radial direction is designed to be similar to conventional RLSAs f... View full abstract»

    In this paper a procedure is presented, allowing the automatic design of circular polarized radial line slot antennas, with either pencil or shaped beam patterns. The antenna slot layout is refined by an optimization scheme based on the physical picture behind the working mechanism of the array. The validity of the approach has been proved by designing very efficient pencil beam antennas, either w... View full abstract»

  • Gain Enhancement of H-Plane Sectoral Post-Wall Horn Antenna by Connecting Tapered Slots for Millimeter-Wave Communication

    We propose a millimeter-wave antenna to serve as an element antenna for a multi-sector switched-beam antenna, which can be fed by a post-wall waveguide. Several tapered slot antennas are connected to an aperture of an H-plane sectoral post-wall horn antenna whose radiation pattern is narrowed in the H-plane to further narrow the pattern in the E-plane. Moreover, the aperture of each tapered slot a... View full abstract»

    An all-dielectric terahertz (THz) horn antenna based on hollow-core electromagnetic crystal structure is designed, fabricated and characterized. Simulation shows that the antenna works above 100 GHz, with better than 30 dB return loss and highly directional radiation pattern. Fabrication of the antenna is done using a THz polymer-jetting rapid prototyping technique. Characterization of the antenna... View full abstract»

    A circularly polarized printed antenna, capable of operating over an octave bandwidth is designed and fabricated. The design is evolved from classical printed monopole/dipole geometry. It employs a microstrip-line fed rectangular radiator, printed on the top of a substrate. The ground, extended as another rectangular radiator is printed on the bottom of the substrate. Both the top and bottom radia... View full abstract»

  • Compact Broadband Dual Coupling-Feed Circularly Polarized RFID Microstrip Tag Antenna Mountable on Metallic Surface

    A square-shaped microstrip RFID tag antenna designed for 915 MHz band is proposed. The antenna is capacitively excited by a dual-offset coupling feed network with one of the feed lines a quarter-wavelength longer than the other. By selecting appropriate dimensions for the coupled lines and feed-lines, along with desirable coupling distance between the coupled line and square patch, the input imped... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a systematic design approach for low-profile UWB body-of-revolution (BoR) monopole antennas with specified radiation objectives and size constraints. The proposed method combines a random walk scheme, the genetic algorithm, and a BoR moment method analysis for antenna shape optimization. A weighted global cost function, which minimizes the difference between potential optimal p... View full abstract»

    A novel differentially fed dual-band implantable antenna is proposed for the first time for a fully implantable neuro-microsystem. The antenna operates at two center frequencies of 433.9 MHz and 542.4 MHz, which are close to the 402-405 MHz medical implant communication services (MICS) band, to support sub-GHz wideband communication for high-data rate implantable neural recording application.

    A mode-based design method for dual-band and self-deplexing antennas is presented. By analyzing the E-field distributions and cut-off frequencies of the individual modes in a T-stub loaded aperture, we selected two proper modes for the antenna designed for dual-frequency operations. The desired feature is that at the two different frequencies, the antenna may perform the same or similar radiation ... View full abstract»

    Two designs of multi-band antennas for automotive communications are presented. Both antennas are designed to operate in four frequency bands (GSM, E-GSM, DCS, PCS) and are intended to be integrated in a PCB, placed inside a plastic box and mounted under the dashboard of the vehicle. The first design is a planar printed antenna fully integrated into the printed circuit board (PCB), thus reducing t... View full abstract»

    A compact, fully-printed negative-refractive-index transmission-line (NRI-TL) metamaterial-loaded dipole antenna is proposed, which exhibits multiband resonant characteristics that are not harmonically related. The multiband behavior is achieved by loading a host dipole antenna with series capacitive gaps and shunt inductive strips, to form a two unit-cell NRI-TL loaded antenna. By modeling the ri...

    A pattern reconfigurable ring-patch antenna is presented. It comprises a bendable parasitic plate located in the middle of a fixed square ring. The fixed ring supports the feed, and the plate is effectively a parasitic structure. The plate's bending action is from a bisecting hinge between the rectangular halves (flaps) that can be actuated separately. The actuation is by extending a shape memory ... View full abstract»
