EFFECTIVE WAVE GUIDE MODEL (EWGM) FOR RESONANT FREQUENCY COMPUTATION OF RECTANGULAR DIELECTRIC RESONATOR ANTENNAS

By S. Maity and B. Gupta

Full Article PDF (233 KB)

Abstract:
A new model (EWGM) is presented to predict the resonant frequency of Rectangular Dielectric Resonator Antenna (RDRA) more accurately. Correction factors are introduced to calculate the effective dimensions by considering the effect of relative permittivity and aspect ratios (length/height and width/height) of RDRA. Results obtained from EWGM are compared with previous studies and experimental data to show its accuracy and effectiveness.
