Input impedance of microstrip antennas
By: Deshpande, M.; Bailey, M.;
1982 / IEEE
This item was taken from the IEEE Periodical ' Input impedance of microstrip antennas ' Using Richmond's reaction integral equation, an expression is derived for the input impedance of microstrip patch antennas excited by either a microstrip line or a coaxial probe. The effects of the finite substrate thickness, a dielectric protective cover, and associated surface waves are properly included by the use of the exact dyadic Green's function. Using the present formulation the input impedance of a rectangular microstrip antenna is determined and compared with experimental and earlier calculated results.
