Abstract

Two antenna configurations are considered for improving the surface wave efficiency of a radiating element while making the element construction comparable to a conventional printed antenna. These elements are examined using a full-wave spectral domain Green's function/Galerkin's technique. The first design uses both a probe and a shorting pin oppositely placed to one another to increase the resonant frequency. The second geometry is a circular patch surrounded by a parasitic annular ring. The advantages and drawbacks of these geometries are addressed.
