Stripline-Fed Archimedean Spiral Antenna

  title={Stripline-Fed Archimedean Spiral Antenna},
  author={Teng-Kai Chen and G. H. Huff},
  journal={IEEE Antennas and Wireless Propagation Letters},
An inward-fed two-arm Archimedean spiral antenna is proposed, which integrates a stripline feed network into one of the spiral arms. A broadband stripline tapered impedance transformer conformal to the spiral's winding provides a novel matching network between the input impedance of the spiral and the characteristic impedance of the stripline. The Dyson-style balun at the spiral's center converts the guided stripline mode to the radiating spiral mode. The transformation from a gap-fed design to… CONTINUE READING
