Pattern reconfigurable antenna designs insub-6 ghz band for 5g applications
Çelik, Feza Turgay; Aydın Çivi, Hatice Özlem; Alatan, Lale; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2021-2-08)
In this thesis, design,simulations,fabrication, and radiation pattern measurementsof reconfigurable antennas for sub-6GHz application of 5G protocol are presented. Modeanalysis techniquesand array theory areemployed to have anunderstanding ofthe pattern reconfigurability conceptof the designs.As a first step, adual-fed rectangular patch antenna is designed,simulated,fabricated,and then measured. Even and odd mode definitions onthe rectangular patch antennas are employed in the design pr...
Development of multiband microstrip antennas for GPS applications
Önder, Mustafa Caner; Aydın Çivi, Hatice Özlem; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2019)
In this thesis study, the design, fabrication and measurements of dualband and triband circularly polarized microstrip antennas for GPS applications are presented. Characteristic mode analysis technique is applied to get an insight into circularly polarized patch antennas. A design flow is presented for a circularly polarized L1 GPS band microstrip antenna by using characteristic mode analysis. A single fed L1/L2 GPS band right hand circularly polarized four-slotted patch antenna is designed by using reacti...
Beam Steerable Traveling Wave Meander Line Antenna Using Varactor Diode for X-Band Applications
Gokalp, Nihan; Aydın Çivi, Hatice Özlem (2008-07-11)
This paper presents a novel beam steerable meander line antenna with varactor diode for X-band applications. Beam steering has been achieved by loading the arms of the meander line antenna with varactor diodes. The capacitances of the varactor diodes have been controlled by DC bias voltage. Instead of varactor diodes, RF-MEMS variable capacitances can be used to scan the beam. Since the insertion loss of MEMS capacitances are small compared to loss of varactor diodes, use of MEMS capacitors will increase th...
Wideband omnidirectional and sector coverage antenna arrays for base stations
Alatan, Lale (2018-01-01)
By using parallel strip line fed printed dipole antennas as array elements, an omnidirectional antenna array and a wide angle sector coverage array operating in octave band are designed. A maximum deviation of ±1.25 dB from the omnidirectional pattern is achieved for the omnidirectional array, and the average gain of the antenna was measured as being 5 dB in the 1.35–2.7GHz band. For the sector coverage array, a special reflector design is utilized to maintain a half power beam width of around 115◦ with a s...
Design, simulation, and fabrication of cubesat antenna systems
Dolapçı, Türker; Ergül, Özgür Salih; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2020-9)
This study aims to design, simulate, and fabricate on-board and ground station antenna systems for CubeSats, i.e., the most affordable space missions. An on-board UHF turnstile antenna system is optimized in simulation evironment in accordance with different pattern requirements, by changing the orientation of the antenna arms. In order to feed the turnstile antenna arms by successive 90◦ phase differences between them, a four-way quadrature splitter circuit is designed and fabricated. Antenna pattern m...
