|Abstract:||Microstrip patch antenna array to be used for X-band short-range microwave applications has been introduced. This antenna maintains a maximum gain of 14.6 dB for far field region w.r.t paraboloidal rectangular aperture antenna. It is actually a probe (coaxial) fed antenna with quarter wave sections that are fabricated as an arrangement for impedance matching with 50 Ω coaxial cable. This antenna works well in the frequency range 8.45-9.33 GHz with a maximum at 8.53 GHz. It is basically a low cost, lightweight, medium gain and narrowband antenna and suited for short-range microwave applications such as a feeding element for other antennas and in research institutes as a reference antenna. It can also be used at the output of signal conditioning circuit for receiving signals from micro electromechanical sensors.|
