Abstract

This paper presents a cavity backed slot antenna design with high gain and relatively small size. The large ground plane of the original design is cut 75%. Mushroom cells, ground plane orientation, and bending edges in the ground plane have been employed to improve the antenna gain. A 19.25 dB maximum gain is obtained with an average gain of 18.2 dB in the entire operating band.
