Novel low profile antenna candidates for EHF portable terminalsThis paper presents three low profile antenna candidates for EHF portable communication terminals. The first structure is a planar, multilayer microstrip antenna utilizing electromagnetic coupling to minimize the complexity and losses associated with the feed network. The second candidate is a medium gain (15 dB) radiating cavity antenna utilizing a thick metallic ground plane. This element is amenable to device integration because a heat sink is incorporated and an area is available for fastening modular RF components. Thirdly, as an alternative to microstrip antennas, dielectric resonator antennas (DRA's) are presented. A broadband (28 percent) DRA is discussed. Experimental measurements are presented for all three antenna candidates.
