Analysis and design of microstrip patch antennas with arbitrary slot shapes
Şener, Göker; Alatan, Lale; Kuzuoğlu, Mustafa; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2011)
A new method is proposed that provides simple and effcient design and analysis algorithm for microstrip antennas with arbitrary patch shapes. The proposed procedure uses the mutiport network model (MNM) where the antenna is considered as a cavity bounded by perfect electric conductors on the top and the bottom surfaces and perfect magnetic conductor on the side surfaces. Ports are defined along the periphery of the patch, and the impedance matrix representing the voltage induced at one port due to a current...
Design, fabrication and characterization of novel metamaterials in microwave and terahertz regions : multi-band, frequency-tunable and miniaturized structures
Ekmekçi, Evren; Sayan, Gönül; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2010)
This dissertation is focused on the design, fabrication, and characterization of novel metamaterials in microwave and terahertz regions with the following outcomes: A planar µ-negative metamaterial structure, called double-sided SRR (DSRR), is proposed in the first part of this study. DSRR combines the features of a conventional split ring resonator (SRR) and a broadside-coupled SRR (BC-SRR) to obtain much better miniaturization at microwave frequencies for a given physical cell size. In addition to DSRR, d...
Design and analysis of ultra-wideband (UWB) printed monopole antennas of circular shape
Karadağ, Serkan; Aydın Çivi, Hatice Özlem; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2017)
This study proposes three microstrip line fed circular monopole antennas with ultra-wideband (UWB) characteristics, improved omnidirectional radiation pattern and WLAN (5 GHz-6 GHz) band notched characteristics for wireless and mobile communication systems. In this thesis, first, a microstrip line fed ultra-wideband ring monopole antenna with improved omnidirectional radiation pattern is designed, fabricated and measured. Two corners are tapered on the ground plane for increasing impedance bandwidth. In ord...
Optimization of the array geometry for direction finding
Özaydın, Seval; Koç, Seyit Sencer; Tanık, Yalçın; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2003)
In this thesis, optimization of the geometry of non-uniform arrays for direction finding yielding unambiguous results is studied. A measure of similarity between the array response vectors is defined. In this measure, the effects of antenna array geometry, source placements and antenna gains are included as variable parameters. Then, assuming that the antenna gains are known and constant, constraints on the similarity function are developed and described to result in unambiguous configurations and maximum r...
Analysis of coupled lines in microwave printed circuit elements
Piroğlu, Şefika Özkal; Dural Ünver, Mevlüde Gülbin; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2007)
Full wave analysis of microstrip lines at microwave frequencies is performed by using method of moments in conjunction with closed-form spatial domain Green’s functions. The Green’s functions are in general Sommerfeld-type integrals which are computationally expensive. To improve the efficiency of the technique, Green’s functions are approximated by their closed-forms. Microstrip lines are excited by arbitrarily located current sources and are terminated by complex loads at both ends. Current distributions ...
