This paper presents calculated and measured results for infinite phased arrays of probe-fed stacked rectangular and circular microstrip patches. A numerical model is described that is based on a rigorous Green's function/Galerkin solution. In this solution, the connection of one or more vertical probe feeds to each patch is accurately modeled using a special attachment mode basis function, which is derived from the corresponding cavity model solution. Numerical results for both linearly and circularly polarized arrays are obtained. Measured results from a waveguide simulator are also presented and used to validate the numerical model.
