Abstract

Higher order regular polygonal loop antennas are analyzed. The input impedance of higher order regular polygonal loop antennas varies gradually when the operating frequency or the order of polygon changes. This behavior of input impedance provides a wide range of input impedance and many resonant points to antenna designers. The higher order regular polygonal loop antenna generally possesses higher directivity but poorer Broadband impedance property. As the operating frequency becomes higher, its directivity increases remarkably and the Broadband property becomes more prominent. To achieve the desired properties, one can select one of the many design data sets with a tradeoff between Broadband property and directivity.
