Wide-Band Directional Cavity Antenna with Low Scanning Loss for WLAN
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research C, Vol. 118, 231-245, 2022
Abstract
In this paper, a wide-band cavity antenna with low scanning loss for 20% antenna bandwidth as well as having a wide 20% 1-dB gain bandwidth over the antenna beam scanning angle is proposed. The antenna operates in the 5 GHz band of IEEE 802.11 ac wireless local area network (WLAN) applications. A beam scanning of 20˚ is demonstrated by varying the height of a slider within the antenna cavity. The broadside peak gain of 9.6 dBi is maintained for 20% of the antenna bandwidth with a gain reduction of only 0.3 dB throughout its operating frequency range. Besides, the scanning loss suffered by the antenna when scanning from the broadside to the maximum scanned angle is only 0.8 dB. The proposed scan performance is verified for a single element antenna and a two-element antenna array.
