Abstract

The reciprocity approach for analyzing microstrip patch antennas on circularly-cylindrical platforms with substrate loading has been extended to include superstrate loading as well. By setting the relative permittivity of the superstrate to that of air, the validity of the superstrate analysis was confirmed through a comparison with the results produced using the substrate-only expressions for the far-field radiation pattern of a rectangular microstrip patch antenna previously derived. Finally, the ability to analyze arbitrary geometries including superstrates of any relative permittivity were also demonstrated using an elliptical patch antenna with a superstrate consisting of Duroid.
