A wideband unidirectional antenna, which is composed of a planar electric dipole and a magnetic dipole formed by a vertically-oriented shorted patch antenna, is presented for millimeter wave applications. The antenna is realized by a plated through hole printed technique with the use of a microwave substrate and is excited by a T-shaped coupled strip feed.(More)
This letter presents a new circularly polarized patch antenna with loaded shorting elements to achieve symmetric broadside radiation and size reduction. The loaded elements are parasitic to the driven patch, but are shorted to the ground plane. Conventionally, shorting pins or walls are a common technique for reducing the size of the antenna. However,(More)
A novel circularly polarized (CP) antenna element based on spiral antenna is proposed in this paper. It is differentially fed with an aperture through two vias locating at opposite sides of the aperture. This element can be easily integrated with the low loss substrate integrated waveguide and fabricated with the low cost printed circuit board technology.(More)
Traditional coplanar waveguide (CPW)-fed planar slot antennas are inherently narrow in bandwidth. Widening open-ends of the slot and adding parasitic elements are popular techniques for bandwidth enhancement. An alternative approach is to apply complementary sources. In this paper, a new stacked structure of complementary antenna is proposed which utilizes(More)
A single-feed circularly polarized (CP) patch antenna at L-band is designed and built using the recently developed U-slot loaded patch technique. With the presence of the U-slot, the antenna fabricated on a high-dielectric-constant (&#x03B5;<sub>r</sub> = 10.02) substrate achieves a reasonable axial-ratio bandwidth. At the operating frequency of 1.575 GHz,(More)
Metamaterials are effectively homogeneous materials that display extraordinary dispersion. Negative index metamaterials, zero index metamaterials and extremely anisotropic metamaterials are just a few examples. Instead of using locally resonating elements that may cause undesirable absorption, there are huge efforts to seek alternative routes to obtain(More)
A substrate integrated image guide (SIIG) transmission line is realized based on the low temperature co-fired ceramic (LTCC) technology. Compared with other existed SIIGs, this configuration not only offers simplicity in designing procedures, but also provides better fabrication reliability. Due to its extremely low loss, this type of SIIG can be applied in(More)
Terahertz (THz) metasurfaces have been explored recently due to their properties such as low material loss and ease of fabrication compared to three-dimensional (3D) metamaterials. Although the dispersion properties of the reflection/transmission-type THz metasurface were observed in some published literature, the method to control them at will has been(More)
High-gain and beam-scanning antennas are extremely important in the applications of millimeter-wave (MMW) and terahertz (THz) technologies. Dielectric lens is a suitable candidate for this purpose, because it has no metal and quite small feeding loss. In this paper, discrete dielectric lenses are studied in which periodic antireflection (AR) structures are(More)
A discrete dielectric lens antenna is studied in this paper as a possible low-loss, low-cost solution for high-gain terahertz operation. Dielectric columns with a variable height are used as the lens elements for phase compensation. A matching layer at the air-dielectric interface is added to reduce the reflection and to enhance the lens antenna(More)
