Flexible and Conformal Printed Monopoles Antennas

(1) , (1) , (2)


This paper presents the development and design of flexible and conformal printed monopoles antennas. The main objective is to control the level of radiation in broadside antenna from zero to a maximum by changing the curvature of printed board. Two printed antennas types are considered: thin wire and disk monopole. Furthermore, with the curving radius R increasing, the classical null on the broadside radiation pattern disappears gradually for both wire and disk. Increasing the curvature radius of conformal flexible antenna while keeping all other parameters same, wire monopole antenna becomes mismatched while the disk monopole antenna which remains matched for all radius of curvatures. The simulated results of various monopoles are compared successfully with measurements.
