Manufacturable wafer-scale microstrip patch antennas

Abstract

The antenna bandwidth depends on the thickness of the Si wafer on which it is fabricated. Unfortunately, increasing the thickness of the substrate, results in more power leaking to substrate modes and surface waves, therefore the efficiency of the antenna is reduced. By using deep-reactive- ion-etching (DRIE) the Si underneath the patch antennas can be very… (More)
