A Multi-Frequency Microstrip-fed Annular-Slot Antenna

This note describes a multi frequency annular slot antenna. The design is based on the paper: “A Multi-frequency Microstrip-fed Annular Slot Antenna” by Hooman Tehrani and Kai Chang. The entire structure is defined parametrically to allow optimisation and parametric studies. The setup process in CST MICROWAVE STUDIO® takes about 10 to 15 min for an experienced user.

The substrate has a thickness of 0.762 mm and a dielectric constant of 2.45. The width of the 50 Ohm Microstrip line is 2.16 mm. All other dimesions can be found in following table. All values are in mm.

Calculation Results

The simulation results agree very well with the published results (Figure 3). Several slot resonances are excited. The simulated resonance frequencies are at 3.5 GHZ, 4.5 GHz and 6.5 GHz respectively.

EM field distribution and SAR in a Human Head with MRI Coil

EM field distribution and SAR in a Human Head with MRI Coil
CST MICROWAVE STUDIO® (CST MWS) was used to aid in the computational investigation of the transverse B1-field homogeneity and SAR values in a 11.7 T / 500 MHz 4-port driven RF head coil loaded with a high-resolution human model (HUGO based on the Visible Human Project®). The simulations show the expected enhancement of the B-field in the centre of the head compared with the unloaded case and no significant changes in the maximum 1g SAR values between 2-port linear and circular polarizations. This work was carried out by CEA Saclay, France and is summarised in this article with the permssion and courtesy of Xavier Hanus and his colleagues. Read full article..

Advanced Modelling and Measurement of Wideband Horn Antennas
This paper presents the excellent correlation of measurement results to the numerical calculations of a SATIMO dual-ridge horn antenna which include the directivity, boresight gain, and return loss vs. frequency. The structure is electrically large which lends itself, as a result of its efficient memory utilisation, to the CST MICROWAVE STUDIO® (CST MWS) Time Domain Solver. Broadband, high resolution gain results can be obtained within a single run with as many as 100 farfield monitors being defined. The results are presented with the courtesy and permission of SATIMO, Italy. Read full article..
