Abstract

In this paper, a new type of aperture coupled microstrip patch antenna with tilted-beam based on the principal of the dipole yagi antenna is proposed and investigated experimentally. Its configuration is composed by 3 types of patches; reflector, driver, and director. Tilted beam patterns are effected by many parameters as those of dipole yagi antenna; sizes of the patches, gaps between the patches, characteristics of the substrates, feeding method and etc. Therefore, in this paper, the effects of varying design parameters of this antenna are studied with a goal of enhancing the gain and tilting the beams. A microtrip patch antenna with tilted beam based on performance trade-offs is designed and fabricated. Measured and simulated results for return loss and radiation patterns are presented. It has 45$^{\circ}$ tilted beam and very close to simulation beam pattern at resonant frequency, 2.58 GHz.
