Novel design of end-fire dipole array antennas


Conference Paper

© 2016 IEEE. An end-fire dipole array antenna with a novel impedance matching feeding structure is presented for point-to-point communication or power transmission. The widths of the transmission lines are adjusted to match the radiation conductance of the adjacent dipole and a paralleled capacitance is added to tune out the inductive susceptance of each dipole. The measured results show that the array has a reflection coefficient of -32.1 dB at 2.5 GHz, the corresponding gain is 6.76 dBi and the front-back ratio is 9.86 dB.
