Paper Abstract

A more accurate analysis and design for HTc superconducting microstrip patch antenna is presented in this work. The concise Transverse Transmission Line (TTL) method in the Fourier Transform Domain (FTD) along with the Transmission Line Model are applied. Sine the TTL is a full wave method and very much suitable on microwave and millimeter-wave components study, it gives accurate effective dielectric constant which contributes definitively to obtain all others antenna parameters with higher precision such as length, efficiency, bandwidth, quality factor, radiation patterns.
