Simultaneous shape and topology optimization for the design of patch antennas

Abstract

A simultaneous shape and topology optimization method for designing patch antennas is discussed. The material distribution of a dielectric substrate is optimized using topology optimization concurrently as the metallic patch is optimized using shape optimization. The radiation amplitude in a specified mode at a selected frequency is chosen as the design… (More)
