Gain enhancement of slot antenna using grooved structure and FSS layer

Abstract : This letter presents a high gain slot antenna for K-band non-contact measurement systems. The proposed antenna consists of a slot antenna on a grooved metal structure with a single frequency selective surface. In addition to a high-gain characteristic, a reduced size is strongly required for easy embedding. These features are the main objectives of this antenna design. To achieve these two objectives, an optimization procedure, based on a global algorithm, is used. Both simulation and optimization are carried out by means a full-wave electromagnetic simulation tool. Eventually, to validate the proposed design, a prototype of the antenna has been manufactured and tested. More than 15 dB of gain is measured over the operating frequency range, while optimal gain can reach 17 dB at frequency 25.5 GHz. These characteristics make this antenna very suitable for non-contact measurement, i.e., radar systems. © 2017, Electromagnetics Academy. All rights reserved.
