Dielectric Resonator Antenna

Application ID: 12042


A dielectric resonator placed near a radiating element can be used to increase directivity and gain. Here, a block of quartz dielectric, with additional passive metallic antenna elements, is placed above a slot antenna. The fields in and around the antenna are solved for. The far field pattern and impedance is computed and improved performance is seen.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
