High Gain Circularly-Polarized Dielectric Resonator Antenna Array with Helical Exciter
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research Letters, Vol. 44, 107-111, 2014
Abstract
A novel (2x2) high-gain circularly-polarized cylindrical dielectric resonator antenna array integrated with helical exciter is proposed. The array offers a maximum gain of 13.8 dBi at the operating frequency. The circular polarization is obtained by incorporating helical exciter in the array structure. A prototype of the proposed configuration integrated with helical exciter has been fabricated, tested and the idea has been verified. A good agreement has been obtained between the measured and the simulated results.
