Low Profile Wide Beamwidth Antenna Fed by 1:5 Unequal Wilkinson Power Divider

Progress In Electromagnetics Research Letters, Vol. 99, 111-118, 2021
Abstract
A novel wide beamwidth microstrip patch antenna fed by a 1:5 unequal Wilkinson power divider with a low profile of 0.027λ0 is presented. A circular patch and an independent feeding concentric metal ring can realize the broad half-power beamwidth (HPBW) in the far field. A 1:5 unequal Wilkinson power divider is designed as the antenna feed. The HPBWs of the antenna reach 258° and 267° in XZ-plane and YZ-plane, respectively, covering the whole upper half space at central frequency (2.54 GHz). The results of simulation and measurement show great consistency.
