Blade edge shape, Resonance, Radiation pattern, Electric and magnetic field distribution


In this paper, a simple design of a microstrip patch antenna with a blade edge shape is proposed. It is based on annular rings with blade-shaped edges. The antenna has a wide range of applications in the X band such as terrestrial, radar, satellite communication,wave-guide probing and etc. The model antenna has a compact structure with a size of 25 × 20 mm2 and is etched over the FR-4 (  = 4.54). The design is simulated in Computer Simulation Technology, CST software-Microwave Studio. The proposed antenna offers a stable radiation pattern, a high gain factor, and a reduced lobe level. Sharp edges of antenna elements increase the antenna activity scale in the X band.
