Abstract

A novel multi-band cylindrical dielectric resonator antenna (CDRA) using microwave laminates with permittivity variation in azimuth direction fed by coaxial probe is proposed in this paper. The proposed structures are constructed using different materials having different permittivities in azimuth direction in cylindrical dielectric resonator (DR). In order to determine the performance of various design parameters on resonance frequency and bandwidth, parametric studies have been performed. The operating band can be scaled up or down by adjusting the design parameters. Dualband and triple-band CDRAs have been fabricated using commercially available microwave laminates to validate the simulation results. For each case, the input reflection coefficient, radiation pattern and antenna gain are simulated and measured. Good agreement between simulated and measured results has been observed. The proposed antennas may be suitable for WLAN applications.
