Abstract:
Radiation from a superstrate loaded cylindrical-rectangular microstrip patch antenna with an air gap between the substrate and the superstrate, is analyzed using the full-wave approach and the electric surface current model. Results are presented in the form of normalized radiation patterns for various thicknesses of the air gap and also for superstrates made of lossy dielectric material, to show the effects of these on the radiation from the antenna. Both axialand azimuthal current elements are considered.
