DESIGN OF DOUBLE DIPOLE ANTENNA WITH ENHANCED USABLE BANDWIDTH FOR WIDEBAND PHASED ARRAY APPLICATIONS

By A. A. Eldek

Full Article PDF (387 KB)

Abstract:
In this paper, the regular microstrip-fed dipole antenna with simplified balun is modified to improve the usable bandwidth by increasing the stability of the radiation patterns. The presented antenna consists of two parallel dipoles of different lengths to obtain two main resonances. The distance between the two dipoles is adjusted to reduce the return loss between the two main resonances. A wide usable bandwidth of more than 84% is obtained with high radiation pattern stability. The proposed antenna is simple and small in size. The results of a modified two-element array configuration from this antenna show that it is very good candidate for wideband phased array applications.
