Abstract

In this paper, a microwave dielectric ceramic (MDC) substrate based probe-fed patch antenna for Ku-band microwave applications is introduced and experimentally inspected. The substrate material is fabricated from Manganese-zinc ferrite. The material is synthesized using the sol-gel method and the structure formation is verified using X-ray diffraction method. The focusing point of this research is using MDC material for microwave antenna design and performance analysis. The proposed antenna shows impedance bandwidth of 118MHz (15.506 GHz to 15.624 GHz) and realized gain of 4.25 dB with a compact size of 20×20× 0.5 mm3.
