High gain microstrip antennas loaded with high characteristic impedance superstrates

Abstract

It is shown that, under some resonance conditions, a microstrip patch antenna can be designed to achieve the highest possible gain when covered with a superstrate at the proper distance in free space. The transmission line analogy and the cavity model are used to deduce the resonance conditions required to achieve the highest gain. The resonance conditions… (More)
