Gap-coupled Circular Microstrip Patch Antenna for 60 GHz Millimeter Wave Applications [article]

Pradeep Kumar
In this paper, the design of the gap-coupled circular microstrip antenna with multi-layer substrate for 60 GHz technology is presented. The two circular patches are placed closed to each other. The feed patch is the excited by microstrip line feeding technique and the parasitic patch is excited by gapcoupling. The designed antenna is simulated and optimized using CST Microwave Studio simulator based upon finite difference time domain method. The designed antenna produces a band width of 57.2
