Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


This part of the paper describes the application of the general analysis of Part I to several practical geometries of multilayer/multifeed printed antennas. These examples include a dual-feed circularly polarized geometry; a stacked patch geometry; a stripline-aperture coupled geometry with a radome; an open-end proximity coupled patch; and dipole and slot geometries inclined or perpendicularly coupled to different feedlines. Features of the selected geometries cover many practical aspects of multilayer integrated phased arrays. Experimental results for several geometries are compared with the analytical results to demonstrate the accuracy and versatility of the analysis used. Various design considerations for the use of these multilayered printed antenna geometries in integrated phased array applications are discussed.
