    A Novel Broadband Microstrip Antenna Based on Operation of Multi-Resonant Modes

    Taohua Chen1, Yueyun Chen1,*, Rongling Jian1, Zushen Liu2, Alan Yang3

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.60, No.1, pp. 335-349, 2019, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2019.07073

    Abstract A novel broadband microstrip antenna under operation of TM1/2,0, TM10 and TM12 modes through a shorting wall and slots is proposed in this paper. Initially, an inverted U-shaped slot is adopted around the feeding point, which achieves a good impedance matching on TM10 mode and separates the patch into two parts. Additionally, a shorting wall is added underneath the edge of smaller patch to excite another one-quarter resonant mode, i.e., TM1/2,0 mode of smaller patch close to TM10 mode to expand the impedance bandwidth. Further, the antenna width is enlarged and two symmetrical vertical rectangular slots are cut More >

    Hybrid Finite Element and Volume Integral Methods for Scattering Using Parametric Geometry

    John L. Volakis1, Kubilay Sertel1, Erik Jørgensen2, Rick W. Kindt1

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.5, No.5, pp. 463-476, 2004, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2004.005.463

    Abstract In this paper we address several topics relating to the development and implementation of volume integral and hybrid finite element methods for electromagnetic modeling. Comparisons of volume integral equation formulations with the finite element-boundary integral method are given in terms of accuracy and computing resources. We also discuss preconditioning and parallelization of the multilevel fast multipole method, and propose higher-order basis functions for curvilinear quadrilaterals and volumetric basis functions for curvilinear hexahedra. The latter have the desirable property of vanishing divergence within the element but non-zero curl. In addition, a new domain decomposition is introduced More >

    Gyro-Chirality Effect of Bianisotropic Substrate on the Resonant Frequency and Half-power Bandwidth of Rectangular Microstrip Patch Antenna

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.52, No.2, pp. 123-131, 2016, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2016.052.123

    Abstract In this paper, the gyrotropic bi-anisotropy of the chiral medium in substrate constitutive parameters (xc and hc) of a rectangular microstrip patch antenna is introduced in order to observe its effects on the complex resonant frequency and half-power bandwidth. The analysis is based on the full-wave spectral domain approach using the Moment Method, with sinusoidal type basis functions. The numerical calculations related to the dominant mode have been carried out, and it has been observed that the resonant frequency and the bandwidth are directly linked to the medium chirality. The new results can be considered More >

    Characteristics of a Single I-shaped Slitted Zeroth-Order Resonance Mushroom Antenna based on Metamaterials

    Cherl-Hee Lee, Jonghun Lee1

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.39, No.3, pp. 289-299, 2014, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2014.039.289

    Abstract The broadband design of a metamaterials-based zeroth-order resonance (ZOR) mushroom antenna with an I-shaped slit is presented and experimentally studied. The presented metamaterials-based antenna uses a unit cell based on a composite right/left handed (CRLH) transmission line and can provide a ZOR frequency. By designing the I-shaped slot resonance frequency adjacently to the ZOR frequency, the presented antenna can achieve a 10-dB bandwidth enhancement of roughly 7 times with respect to a conventional rectangular-shaped mushroom structure.
