Performance Study of Dipole and Its Variants in Broadband Scenario
Progress In Electromagnetics Research M, Vol. 33, 57-68, 2013
In this paper, the comparison of the performances of planar broadband dipole antenna, broadband folded dipole antenna and broadband bent dipole antenna in broadband scenario is presented. All the three antennas have been designed, developed and evaluated for their electrical characteristics such as VSWR, radiation patterns and gain in the frequency range of 100-1000 MHz. Simulated and measured results are presented.
