ABSTRACT A modified printed bow-tie antenna is designed to simultaneously cover the operations in the C and X-bands from 5.5 to 12.5 GHz. The presented antenna has an end fire radiation pattern that makes it suitable for integration in single and dual polarized phased array systems. The antenna exhibits small size and wide bandwidth of 91%. The radiation characteristics are presented for a single element and a linear array of this antenna.

    ABSTRACT: This chapter presents a comprehensive review of RFID technology concerning the pros pects of directional especially forward directional antennas and propagation for multiband operation. The technical considerations of directional antenna parameters are alsodiscussed in details in order to provide a complete realization of the parameters in pragmatic approach to the directional antenna designing process, which primarily includes scattering parameters and radiation characteristics. The antenna literature is also critically overviewed to identify the possible solutions of the directional antennas to utilize in single and multi-band handheld RFID reader operation. However, it has been seen that these techniques can be combined to enhance the directional antennas with wider bandwidths and higher gain. Last but not least, the possibilities of forward-directional antennas which spectacularly use the surface wave for the radiation will be explored, and the difference with the conventional directional antennas with them will be discussed.

    ABSTRACT: The main objective of this study is to present a compact coplanar waveguide (CPW)-fed rectangular slot patch antenna for operation in the S (2–4 GHz) and C bands (4–8 GHz). The proposed antenna has dimensions 20 × 36 × 0.5 mm3. The antenna is fabricated on a thin low loss Rogers RO3203 substrate and tested. Results are then compared with simulations. The simulated and measured −10 dB bandwidths are found to be 104% (2.48–7.86 GHz) and 103% (3.03–9.41 GHz), respectively. The antenna shows an omnidirectional radiation pattern with reasonable gain values over the same frequency band. © 2013 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. Microwave Opt Technol Lett 55:1714–1717, 2013
