Higher Order Mode Layered Cylindrical Dielectric Resonator Antenna
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research C, Vol. 90, 65-77, 2019
Abstract
A wideband high gain circularly polarized layered cylindrical dielectric resonator antenna (DRA) that operates in a higher order mode is proposed in the X-band frequency range. The antenna consists of two dielectric layers having different dielectric constants and radii. The results demonstrate a considerably improved performance as a result of adding the outer dielectric layer, where wider impedance and axial ratio bandwidths have been attained in conjunction with a higher broadside gain of ~14 dBic. A prototype has been built and measured with close agreement between experimental and simulated results.
