Abstract:
This paper presents the design of Dielectric Resonator Antenna (DRA) operating at 5.8 GHz, using the techniques of Two Segments DRA (TSDRA) and High-Aspect Ratio Structure. The aim of the paper is to reduce the size of the DRA while still maintaining its large impedance bandwidth. The requirements for WLAN applications are carefully taken into considerations in the design of the proposed structure. Comparison has been made between the proposed design and single layer DRA (SLDRA); and it has been found that former has better performances than the later.
