Optimized wideband antenna (OWA) and its applications

    Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

    Abstract

    This paper introduces a new and unique optimized wideband antenna (OWA) which has very wide bandwidth derived from optimization of the geometrical configuration of the structure. The resulting antenna looks similar to the conventional open-sleeve dipole or monopole, however, it is different in that modern computer optimization methods and algorithms were used to achieve the best globally chosen set of length and spacing parameters to achieve a minimization of the peak VSWR in a selected frequency range. This paper will show resulting designs which are far superior to past configurations of this structure, and in some cases, better than any possible known antenna configurations.
