Future of Antenna Design Procedures and Characteristic Mode Analysis
May 17 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Microstrip antennas are in massive demand for several emerging applications such as biomedical devices, ultrawideband communication devices, radar applications, etc. Microstrip antennas are inherently narrowband and low gain antennas. Since their inception, various methods have been introduced to improve them. Most of the methods depend on the software that needs unlimited optimization runs, which increases the antenna design’s computation cost. Theory of Characteristic Modes (TCM) is the powerful analysis technique that made antenna structure easy to understand and comprehend. As it gives physical insight into the antenna’s structure, the analysis and design of the antenna may not need many optimization cycles. It was first introduced in the 1970s, but it was not till 2007 that this method hit the modern world again for planar antenna design. The reason behind the unmatched success of this method was the details it gives about the surface current behavior of the antenna in a user-friendly manner. Since then, CMA (Characteristic Mode Analysis) has been successfully applied to analyze planar structures and helps design and improve specific characteristics of antennas. Most of my research focused on designing and optimizing the UWB antennas using CMA. CMA can fully illustrate antenna structure with a finite number of resonant modes. Hence, it has the potential of simplifying complicated and tedious antenna design procedures. This talk will focus on the following: (a) Can characteristic modes analysis define the future of antenna design procedures by helping to reduce the complexity of antenna design procedure? (b) the possibilities of producing the compact and efficient antenna design using characteristic modes. (c) how surface currents can be controlled to produce optimized antenna designs.
