Bayram, Caner
This thesis includes the design, production and measurement of a reactively loaded microstrip patch antenna. The dual band and circular polarization operation are achieved through the use of narrow slots etched close to the radiating edges on a nearly square patch. During the design process, the effects of antenna parameters on the input impedance and axial ratio characteristics are investigated. A step-by-step procedure is followed during the design process. First, the dual band characteristic is investigated on a slot loaded rectangular patch. Then, an attention is given to improve the circular polarization. Finally, the desired structure is analyzed and information about the design parameters is obtained by means of parametric study. These parametric analyses are done in full wave electromagnetic solver tool HFSS. The designed dual band circularly polarized microstrip patch antenna is manufactured and measured. Acceptable agreement between simulation and measurement results is obtained.

This thesis includes the design, simulation, production and measurement of an asymmetric coplanar strip folded dipole antenna suitable to be used as an element in a linear array operating at S-band (2.7 GHz - 3.3 GHz). In this same manner, its usefulness as an array antenna is also explored in this thesis. This antenna element consists of a microstrip line feed, microstrip to coplanar stripline transition (BALUN) and asymmetric coplanar strip (ACPS) folded dipole. The planar folded dipole can be constructed...

In this thesis work, two microstrip patch antenna arrays are designed for the traffic radar applications. Both of them operate at the 24.125 GHz with 250 MHz bandwidth. Two different series feed networks are used, namely shunt connected series feed network and in line coupled series feed network. The one with shunt connected series feed network is manufactured and measured to make comparisons with the simulation results. It is observed that simulation and measurement results are very similar. 7 degree beamw...
