Improved Performance Characteristics Using Double Layer Stacked Microstrip Loop Shaped Patch Structures for X-Band Operation
Full Text (PDF, 658KB), PP.14-24
The design of a double layer stacked microstrip loop shaped patch antenna for multiband operation has been proposed. The design has been evolved following the iterations of a rectangular patch and a single layer loop patch structure. The material considered for the substrate of both the layers is 1.6 mm thick FR4 epoxy and the feeding technique used for the bottom patch is coaxial/ probe feed. The radiations from the bottom layer patch have been electromagnetically coupled to the upper layer patch. The main results including the reflection coefficient, bandwidth, radiation pattern, gain, directivity and VSWR for single frequency operation in each case have been discussed separately and finally compared. The comparison shows that the proposed stacked structure is clearly advantageous over the conventional rectangular patch and the single layer designed prototype in terms of the standard parameters that have been obtained. The three stage designs are useful to serve the X-band aviation applications including radio location and fixed mobile radio location.
