Abstract:
The hemispherical dielectric resonator antenna (DRA) excited by a single-arm spiral slot is studied theoretically in this paper. The Green's function technique is employed to formulate an integral equation for the spiral slot current. The moment method with piecewise sinusoidal (PWS) basis and testing functions is used to convert the integral equation into a matrix equation by using a deltagap exciting source. The input impedance, return loss, axial ratio and radiation pattern are calculated. Numerical results demonstrate that the analysis is efficient.
