Resistive and Inductive Loading Techniques on Microstrip Antenna for Wideband Application Jeon, Sang-Bong; Ahn, Chang-Hoi;
In this work, an exponentially tapered microstrip antenna was implemented using a resistive loading technique in order to suppress the internal reflections. The inductive loading was realized by introducing slits on the antenna to improve radiation efficiency. Compared with a resistive-loaded antenna, the proposed antenna had an average improvement of about 6.2% in radiation efficiency within the range of 2-10.5 GHz. In addition, the highest peak of the radiated short pulse from the proposed antenna became 45% greater than that of an antenna with resistive loading only.
