Abstract:

A corner fed electric microstrip dipole antenna consisting of a thin electrically conducting, four-sided non-rectangular shaped radiating element having two opposite sides parallel formed on one surface of a dielectric substrate, the ground plane being on the opposite surface. The feed point is located at one corner of the antenna element and the input impedance is matched with a matching microstrip transmission feed line connected to the corner of the antenna. The length of the radiating element determines the resonant frequency along the Y axis i.e., length dimension. This antenna is capable of generating linear, elliptical and circular polarized radiation using a single element and single feed point. Author
