Abstract

A dual-stacked transparent patch antenna using silver coated polyester (AgHT-8) thin film as radiating element and perspex acrylic dielectric substrate as mechanical support is proposed. Employing an air gap between the stacking structure is proven to exhibit better performance in terms of bandwidth and gain compared to a single structure patch antenna. The dual-stacked antenna was also experimentally verified, achieving reasonable agreement between the simulation and measurement results. The proposed antenna has the potential to be adopted in any transparent devices where invisibility of physical appearance is inherent.
