TL;DR: In this article, a defected ground structure (DGS) pattern is proposed to reduce the cross-polarized (XP) radiation of a microstrip patch antenna, which is simple and easy to etch on a commercial microstrip substrate.
Abstract: A defected ground structure (DGS) is proposed to reduce the cross-polarized (XP) radiation of a microstrip patch antenna. The proposed DGS pattern is simple and easy to etch on a commercial microstrip substrate. This will only reduce the XP radiation field without affecting the dominant mode input impedance and co-polarized radiation patterns of a conventional antenna. The new concept has been examined and verified experimentally for a particular DGS pattern employing a circular patch as the radiator. Both simulation and experimental results are presented.

TL;DR: In this paper, a cylindrical dielectric resonator antenna (CDRA) has been examined with a view for using it as another radiating mode with broadside radiation patterns.
Abstract: A resonant mode (HEM12δ), other than those ( HEM11δ and TM01δ) conventionally excited and used in a cylindrical dielectric resonator antenna (CDRA) has been examined with a view for using it as another radiating mode with broadside radiation patterns. Excitation of the mode, being the most challenging aspect, has been discussed and resolved by employing an innovative technique. The proposed concept has been successfully verified and experimentally demonstrated for the first time. More than 8-dBi peak gain with excellent broadside radiation has been obtained from a prototype shaped from a commercially available low-loss dielectric material with relative permittivity 10.
TL;DR: In this article, an improved analytical model is presented for calculating the resonant frequency of circular microstrip antennas with and without air gaps, which is widely applicable to all patch diameters-from very large to very small compared to the height of the dielectric medium below the patch.
Abstract: An improved analytical model is presented for calculating the resonant frequency of circular microstrip antennas with and without air gaps. Unlike the previous models, the present one is widely applicable to all patch diameters-from very large to very small compared to the height of the dielectric medium below the patch and also to the substrates covering the entire range of dielectric constants. The computed results for different antenna dimensions and modes of resonance are compared with the experimental values.
TL;DR: In this paper, the authors examined the multiple resonance phenomenon responsible for the ultra wideband response of the hybrid monopole-dielectric resonator antenna (DRA) and developed guidelines for designing the antennas for any specified frequency band.

TL;DR: Linearly and circularly polarized conformal strip-fed dielectric resonator antennas (DRAs) are studied in this article, where a parasitic patch is used to excite a nearly degenerate mode.
Abstract: Linearly and circularly polarized conformal strip-fed dielectric resonator antennas (DRAs) are studied in this article. In the latter case, a parasitic patch is used to excite a nearly degenerate mode. The hemispherical DRA, excited in its fundamental broadside TE111 mode, is used for the demonstration. In the analysis, the mode-matching method is used to obtain the Green's functions, whereas the method of moments is used to solve for the unknown strip currents. In order to solve the singularity problem of the Green's functions, a recurrence technique is used to evaluate the impedance integrals. This greatly increases the numerical efficiency. Measurements were carried out to verify the calculations, with good results. Keywords: circularly polarized antenna; dielectric antennas; mode-matching methods; moment methods; parasitic antennas; resonance
TL;DR: In this article, a simple ground plane structure that can reduce mutual coupling between closely packed antenna elements is proposed and studied, which consists of a slitted pattern, without via's, etched onto a single ground plane and it is therefore low cost and straightforward to fabricate.
Abstract: A simple ground plane structure that can reduce mutual coupling between closely-packed antenna elements is proposed and studied. The structure consists of a slitted pattern, without via's, etched onto a single ground plane and it is therefore low cost and straightforward to fabricate. It is found that isolations of more than -20 dB can be achieved between two parallel individual planar inverted-F antennas (PIFAs) sharing a common ground plane, with inter-antenna spacing (center to center) of 0.116 lambdao and ground plane size 0.331lambdao 2. At 2.31 GHz it is demonstrated that this translates into an edge to edge separation between antennas of just 10 mm. Similarly the structure can be applied to reduce mutual coupling between three or four radiating elements. In addition the mutual coupling between half wavelength patches and monopoles can also be reduced with the aid of the proposed ground plane structure. Results of parametric studies are also given in this paper. Both simulation and measurement results are used to confirm the suppression of mutual coupling between closely-packed antenna elements with our slitted ground plane.

Abstract: Resonance conditions for a substrate-superstrate printed antenna geometry which allow for large antenna gain are presented. Asymptotic formulas for gain, beamwidth, and bandwidth are given, and the bandwidth limitation of the method is discussed. The method is extended to produce narrow patterns about the horizon, and directive patterns at two different angles.

Abstract: This article presents a historical review of the research carried out on dielectric resonator antennas (DRAs) over the last three decades. Major research activities in each decade are highlighted. The current state of the art of dielectric-resonator-antenna technology is then reviewed. The achievable performance of dielectric resonator antennas designed for compactness, wide impedance bandwidth, low profiles, circular polarization, or high gain are illustrated. The latest developments in dielectric-resonator-antenna arrays and fabrication techniques are also examined.
TL;DR: In this paper, a USB dongle MIMO antenna for the 2.4 GHz WLAN band is presented, which consists of two antenna elements and a coupling element which artificially creates an additional coupling path between the antenna elements.
Abstract: This paper introduces a coupling element to enhance the isolation between two closely packed antennas operating at the same frequency band. The proposed structure consists of two antenna elements and a coupling element which is located in between the two antenna elements. The idea is to use field cancellation to enhance isolation by putting a coupling element which artificially creates an additional coupling path between the antenna elements. To validate the idea, a design for a USB dongle MIMO antenna for the 2.4 GHz WLAN band is presented. In this design, the antenna elements are etched on a compact low-cost FR4 PCB board with dimensions of 20times40times1.6 mm3. According to our measurement results, we can achieve more than 30 dB isolation between the antenna elements even though the two parallel individual planar inverted F antenna (PIFA) in the design share a solid ground plane with inter-antenna spacing (Center to Center) of less than 0.095 lambdao or edge to edge separations of just 3.6 mm (0.0294 lambdao). Both simulation and measurement results are used to confirm the antenna isolation and performance. The method can also be applied to different types of antennas such as non-planar antennas. Parametric studies and current distribution for the design are also included to show how to tune the structure and control the isolation.
