Abstract

A conformal permeable toroidal antenna operating in both a vertically polarized monopole mode and circularly polarized (CP) dipole mode in the UHF frequency range is designed based on theory of magneto-dielectric radiators. This antenna has been fabricated using a new advanced ferromagnetic laminate composite material whose high impedance and anisotropic properties enable an antenna that radiates via magnetic currents. The antenna, less than 0.5 m in diameter and less than 2 cm thick, was fabricated and tested. Including the imperfections of the feed network and a simple matching scheme, the antenna operates from 200 to 500 MHz with an input match of better than -10 dB, CP dipole realized gain as high as +2 dBi, and monopole mode vertically polarized gain as high as -1 dBi.
