Dielectric Resonator Antenna (DRA) with Parasitic Array

Model ID: 12042


A dielectric resonator placed near a radiating element can be used to increase directivity and gain. Here, a block of quartz dielectric, with additional passive metallic antenna elements, is placed above a slot antenna. The fields in and around the antenna are solved for. The far field pattern and impedance is computed and improved performance is seen.

This model was built using the following:
