Wide-Band Log-Periodic Microstrip Antenna with Defected Ground Structure for C-Band Applications
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research C, Vol. 112, 127-137, 2021
Abstract
The manuscript presents a log-periodic microstrip antenna with a defective ground structure (LPMADGS). The antenna is simulated, designed, and validated for C-band applications. The design of the antenna consists of three layers with upper most layer consisting of log-periodic, copper patches with a thickness of 0.035 mm; the middle layer is a 2 mm thick dielectric layer of FR-4 substrate; and the bottom layer is a defected ground structure (concentric ring resonators of 0.035 mm thickness). The suggested antenna design is simulated with a complete ground plane, without ground plane, and with a defective ground plane. The proposed antenna with optimized design is fabricated by wet etched method. The simulated results are approximately similar to the experimentally measured results. The experimentally measured results show transmission peaks at 7.65 GHz and 7.90 GHz. The resonating effect of log-periodic patches with a defected ground structure results in wide-band of 0.91 GHz (-10 dB bandwidth). The proposed antenna structure exhibits a wide bandwidth transmission which mostly resonates in frequency range that lies in C-band. It has future applications for mobile as well as wireless communication.
