Paper Abstract

This paper presents computational models of microstrip antennas using the software CST. The main objective of this paper is to evaluate an alternative way to miniaturize dimensions of microstrip antennas. In order to this, a coating made of ceramic with high dielectric constant was considered for two different cases. Scattering parameters (S11) and radiation patterns were obtained for both structures and compared with standard microstrip antennas for S and C bands. Finally, the results show the possibility of reducing the dimensions by 22% to 31% and demonstrate the feasibility for the implementation and development of these antennas.
