In this paper, design, simulation, production and measurement of a coplanar broad-band microstrip antenna printed on an alumina ceramic substrate is presented. Antenna may be used as an element in a radar applications operating at X-band (8 GHz-12 GHz). The antenna driven system consists of one more directors because of the requirements of directivity. The reason of using high dielectric substrates the antenna can be printed on very small spaces. Antenna in Package structure's temperatures rising up rapidly in radar applications so the use of ceramic substrates also has the advantage of using the antenna in high temperature conditions. The whole structure achieves a measured 52% frequency bandwidth for voltage standing-wave ratio <= 2 and 8-10 dBi absolute gain. The minimum line widths on the antenna is about 25 mu m so thin film technology is used in the fabrication process importance of the antenna.

Design of dual polarized wideband microstrip antennas
Yıldırım, Meltem; Alatan, Lale; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2010)
In this thesis, a wideband dual polarized microstrip antenna is designed, manufactured and measured. Slot coupled patch antenna structure is considered in order to achieve the wideband characteristic. Although rectangular shaped slot coupled patch antennas are widely used in most of the applications, their utilization in dual polarized antenna structures is not feasible due to space limitations regarding the positioning of two separate coupling slots for each polarization. For a rectangular slot, the parame...

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...

This thesis includes design, simulation, realization and measurement of a four-element quasi- Yagi antenna array printed on a ceramic substrate for X-band radar applications. The microstrip array antenna is designed using four quasi-Yagi antennas in a linear configuration and is printed on Alumina 99.6% substrate made by Coorstek Corporation. The antenna can fit into small areas because of compact structure due to the use of high dielectric constant substrates. In addition, the use of alumina ceramic substr...
