Miniaturization of Ultrawideband Monocone Antennas Using Dielectric Loading

Abstract

A so-called intelligent approach for miniaturization of monocone antennas using dielectric loading is presented. Two impedance mismatches causing the degradation in impedance bandwidth due to high permittivity dielectric loading are identified. The input impedance mismatch is addressed by modifying the structure of the antenna feed. Adding a spatial quarter… (More)
