DIELECTRIC RESONATOR ANTENNAS: DESIGNS AND ADVANCES

By D. Soren, R. Ghatak, R. K. Mishra, and D. R. Poddar

Full Article PDF (799 KB)

Abstract:
This article presents a comprehensive review of the research carried out on Dielectric Resonator Antennas (DRAs) over the last three decades. Dielectric resonator antennas (DRAs) have received increased attention in various applications due to their attractive features in terms of high radiation efficiency, light weight, small size and low profile. Over last decades, various bandwidth enhancement techniques have been developed for DRAs. In this article, the attention is focused on a type of DRAs that can offer multi-resonance frequencies and these frequencies can be merged into a broad band. In order to effectively review design techniques, DRAs in this article are categorized into three types, broadband, ultra-wideband (UWB) and multiband. The latest developments in DRAs are discussed in the limited scope of this article.
