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: An optimized monopole microstrip Patch Antenna for UWB (Ultra Wideband) Applications is designed. The proposed antenna is fed by a single microstrip line and designed to operate from 2 to 14 GHz. It consists of a patch with gradual steps, a single slot on the patch, and a partial ground plane with special slit. Experiments are carried out to investigate its return loss and its radiation, which exhibit good radiation pattern and impedance bandwidth over the entire band of frequency.
