Abstract:

The design of a 1.2 GHz microstrip antenna utilizing a superstrate layer for gain enhancement is presented. An 4 x 1 antenna array is also studied with the effects of various inter-elemental spacings investigated. The single antenna element achieves 5.74 dB of gain enhancement in simulation through the use of the superstrate lens. The 4 x 1 superstrate array achieves approximately 2.5 dB of gain enhancement in simulation.
