The dense dielectric (DD) patch antenna is investigated at the 60-GHz band. By employing the printed circuit board (PCB) technology, a 4 4 aperture-coupled DD patch antenna array is designed, fabricated and studied. An impedance bandwidth of 23.7% from 51.3 to 65.1 GHz for vertical bar S11 vertical bar <-10 dB,a gain up to 16.5 dBi with a 3-dB gain bandwidth of 32.5%, and symmetrical broadside radiation patterns with - 15 dB cross-polarization are achieved.
