Abstract

A small, novel, planar bow-tie antenna with rounded edges embedded into a half circular aperture within a conductive frame is investigated in this letter. By rounding the edges of the bow-tie and adjusting the reactive coupling between the bow-tie element and its surrounding conductive frame, an antenna with a -10-dB impedance bandwidth of 11.3:1 (1.15-13 GHz) and an electrical length of 0.13λmm is the maximum wavelength in the operating frequency band) is designed. This paper provides simulated and measured return losses as well as simulated radiation pattern results. © 2006 IEEE.
