Abstract
A wideband unidirectional bowtie antenna with stable radiation patterns is proposed and investigated. It is fed by a wideband microstrip balun, using a coupling triangular structure to induce more balanced currents. Particularly, the corners of the conventional triangular bowtie dipole are rounded to achieve an impedance BW of 106.9% for |S11| ≤ -10 dB ranging from 1.97 GHz to 6.49 GHz. Additionally, a special small circular reflector between the ground plane and the bowtie dipole is used to stabilize the radiation patterns. The antenna achieves a stable gain of around 9.5 dBi with a little variation of 1.4 dBi and unidirectional radiation patterns over the whole operating band.
