Abstract

In this paper, the impact of finite coated ground plane edge diffractions on the amplitude patterns in the E and H planes of circular aperture antennas is investigated. A model based upon the uniform geometrical theory of diffraction for an impedance wedge and the geometrical optics method is presented to calculate the amplitude patterns of a circular aperture antenna mounted on square and circular finite ground planes that are coated with a lossy dielectric on one face (upper face). The model is validated by comparisons of simulated results, obtained by HFSS, with experimental data.
