EFFECT ON RESONANT FREQUENCY FOR E-PLANE MUTUALLY COUPLED MICROSTRIP ANTENNAS

By I. Ray, M. Khan, D. Mandal, and A. K. Bhattacharjee

Full Article PDF (117 KB)

Abstract:
The resonant frequency of a microstrip patch (rectangular, square, and circular) changes as soon as an identical patch is brought closer than 0.2λ. Closed form expressions are presented for the E-plane coupled configuration from which this altered resonant frequency may be easily computed. These expressions may be readily used in the computer aided design of microstrip antenna arrays.
