A novel patch antenna with multiple discontinuities
Taha Imeci, Ş.
A novel microstrip patch antenna with multiple discontinuities has been designed, simulated, built and tested. The design process is based on a 2D random optimization technique which uses a 3D commercial planar em simulator repeatedly. Simulated return loss of 24 dB, input impedance of 56 ohms and a gain of 8.97 dB are achieved at the center frequency of 6.22 GHz. Simulated results are in good agreement with the measured data.
