Abstract:
An L/C dual-band dual-polarized (DBDP) shared aperture microstrip array is proposed in the paper. In the array, the sandwiched stacked patch is employed for the L-band element to exploit the bandwidth for given element thickness. Several key issues regarding the proposed structure are discussed, including: 1) benefit of proposed L band sandwiched stacked patch; 2) C-band feeding method; 3) radiation performance in both bands. A prototype array of L/C DBDP sandwiched stacked patch is designed and fabricated to verify the feasibility of the proposed structure, where the measured data are presented in the paper.
