I've been designing conformal patch array (on cylindrical surfaces) using CST MWS and results agree with the measurements.
On the other side, I've been using a self-made Matlab code but in that case, I don't rigorusly consider elements mutual coupling.
Does anyone have experience about slotted patch antennas, chiral and DNG materials or Superlensing effect?
You can join me and exchange informations in the forum about Slotted Patch antennas and chiral materials.
Thanks in advance
microstrip antennas, microstrip and strip line components, phased arrays.
we can select an array layout, planar and conformal. To check our code we can analyze a typical configuration and give informations about Directivity, nulls positions, computation time and so on...
What do you think?
just to open the discussion and to check the validity of our codes, I just propose a configuration to be evaluated: at the beginning, we can analize
a planar array of 2 x 2 at 1.5 GHz, equally-spaced 0.7 lambda along x and y axis of a radiator whose pattern is cos(x).
Total Pattern on fi =0° and 90°, Directivity, nulls position.
Then we compare our results.
That's my idea, if you want to change the layout, let me know it ok?
Hope it can give us some help, ideas and interest to all the other people joining the section.
Reading your question, I suppose you mean a planar array of patch antennas. If you don't mind, we can use as a single radiator element
a squared patch (side length about 100 mm) with a 3.0 mm thick dielectric.
The adopted material is air;
the patch is probe-excited and is located so that the Return Loss is < -20 dB;
Array Excitation: Uniform.
Tell me what you think about it and if we have to modify something.
