Title: Aperture-Coupled Microstrip Patch Antenna Design Using FEM Simulation Technique
Keywords: Aperture-coupled, microstrip, patch, antenna array

Abstract: The recent developments in microwave systems, put high requirements to antenna arrays for RFID and radar applications, in terms of pattern shape and side lobe specs. The presented paper discusses an inexpensive approach for amplitude distribution control of aperture-coupled microstrip patch antenna, as a building block of more complex array systems.
