dielectric resonator antenna fed by slot
1 view (last 30 days)
I want to design a dielectric resonator antenna fed by slot. In order to achieve so, I add a reflector with reflector ground plane width and length equal 0, slot antenna as excitor, and a thick substrate. In this case, it looks like a dielectric resonator antenna upside down as shown in the attached figure. But when I want to analyse the S parameter, impedance and radiation pattern, no thing been analysed. I am wondering is it correct to design a slot fed dielectric resonator antenna in this way?
The following are the code I am using:
t = dielectric('name','GaAs','EpsilonR',12.94,'Thickness',0.1);
Antenna = slot('Length',0.1,'Width',0.01,'GroundPlaneLength',0.3,'GroundPlaneWidth',0.3);
rf = design(reflector,1.25e9);
rf = reflector('Exciter',Antenna,'Spacing',0.1,'Substrate',t);
rf.GroundPlaneLength = 0;
rf.GroundPlaneWidth = 0;

I would suggest using the Antenna Designer app to make changes in the geometry of elements and visualize them without writing scripts for every change.
In the present case you can try making the dimensions of the substrate equal to the dimensions of the ground plane of the slot.
Hope this helps!
