Abstract:

Printed-circuit or microstrip antennas have proven to be extremely useful in a wide variety of applications requiring radiators that are both low-profile and conformal. Previous theoretical investigations have relied on simple models, which provide very useful information, but are limited in their applicability and accuracy. During the present project a more rigorous theoretical approach has been developed. In addition a radiator with a new geometrical shape, that of an ellipse, has been investigated both theoretically and experimentally. The resulting antenna is able to provide circular polarization using only a single simple feed network.
