An Ultra-Wideband Capped Bow-Tie Multilayer-Stacked Yagi Antenna
An ultra-wideband multilayer-stacked Yagi antenna is presented in this article. The proposed design is based on a capped bow-tie antenna, on which a Yagi antenna is formed simply by capping several pieces of parasitic patches with equal lengths but unequal widths. Thus, the multilayer-stacked antenna attains a small footprint, compact size, customizable gain and simple geometry, which make it promising for various applications. The prototype of this antenna is simulated, fabricated, and measured. Good agreement between simulation and measurement has been observed.
