A Compact Ultra-Wide Band Printed Log-Periodic Antenna Using a Bow-Tie Structure
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research C, Vol. 124, 43-52, 2022
Abstract
This letter, an ultra-wideband compact printed log periodic dipole (LPD) array antenna is designed to operate between 500 MHz and 6 GHz frequencies. The proposed LPD antenna structure consists of one bow-tie dipole and 15 regular dipole elements. The bow-tie element is introduced to improve the antenna's performance at the lowest frequencies below 1 GHz and at the same time to reduce the antenna size maintaining a good performance. An experimental antenna prototype has been designed, optimized, fabricated, numerically and experimentally assessed. The obtained results are very promising, and they demonstrated that the presented antenna prototype is able to operate in the range between 500 MHz and 6 GHz with an average gain of 6 dBi and a very compact size.
