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: A new planar bow-tie antenna is proposed here for UWB applications. The self-complementary principle has been applied to a planar triangular monopole antenna along with bending the microstrip feed line. The antenna has a wider frequency band compared to the traditional bow-tie antenna, complies with the UWB requirements and it is directly matched to the (SMA) connector via 50 Ω microstrip feed line. This antenna has a simple shape which overcomes the complicated matching techniques using baluns or impedance matching sections that are commonly used in bow-tie antennas for widening their limited bandwidths. Another improvement on this new bow-tie antenna is achieved through fractal self-similarity repetition of the triangular shape on each of the patch and its complimentary slot. The simulation results obtained from the CST and HFSS software packages are verified by experimental measurements.

    ABSTRACT: Two large and low-profile panel antenna arrays, used as receiving and transmitting antennas for mobile satellite communications, are described. The receiving and transmitting arrays have overall dimensions of 120 cm × 20.7 cm × 1.3cm and 107.5 cm × 20.4 cm × 1.7 cm, respectively. They exhibit high gains and adequate efficiencies, due to integrated array designs. For the receiving panel array, a method using a number of high-efficiency subarrays, combined with a novel active integrated global feed network, is proposed. For the transmitting panel array, a number of high-efficiency subarrays, together with a novel compact waveguide feed network, is employed. Based on the above techniques, two large panel antenna arrays were successfully developed. We present the detailed designs of the subarrays, the passive and active feed networks, and the vertical transitions. Simulated and experimental results showed that the designed receiving and transmitting panel arrays achieved measured gains and efficiencies of 34.1 dBi and 48.2%, and 33.5 dBi and 36.3%, respectively, in each band. This indicated that the proposed antenna panels are good candidates for future satellite communications applications.

    ABSTRACT: This paper describes a novel ultra-wideband quasi-Yagi circular dipole antenna. The antenna consists of two parallel circular dipole radiators of different resonant lengths. The bandwidth which can meet both impedance and radiation characteristic requirements is greater than 100%. The important advantages of this antenna are ultra-wideband, directive property, and low cross polarization levels with high front to back lobe ratio. A prototype is fabricated and measured. Keywords—— Quasi-Yagi antenna, circular dipole antenna, wideband, Front-to-Back ratio, gain, director and reflector.
