Abstract

A compact half-cylindrical dielectric resonator antenna (DRA) made from a high-permittivity (εr = 69) ceramic material is investigated. A microstrip transmission line excites the DRA. The DRA shows broad and stable radiation characteristics across a matching band of 2.32 to 2.5 GHz with peak gains of 5.5 dBi in the elevation plane and 3.6 dBi in the azimuth plane. The results lead us to propose this DRA for 2.4-GHz WLAN (2.4 to 2.484 GHz) application
