In recent years a variety of non contacting feeds have been developed for microstrip antennas. In Aperture Coupled Feed technique , the radiating patch and the microstrip feed line are separated by the ground plane as shown in Fig. 5. Coupling between the patch and the feed line is made through a slot or an aperture in the ground plane.
of the cylinder are expanded as overlapping triangular functions and complex Fourier mode. It is an eﬃcient procedure to reduce the order of matrix in MOM and the computing time and storage required [3–6]. But the eﬃciency and accuracy of computation results are hindered because of the singularity that appears in impedance matrix elements. When it comes to the singularity problem of the impedance matrix elements for the revolution body and wire antenna in MOM, there are a lot of literature report [1–9], but there is little information considering the singularity of the computation of self-impedance at the junction region between wire antenna and cylinder surface. In this paper, a rigorous method is ﬁrstly introduced to extract the singularity of the Greens function appearing within the integrands of the self-impedance element at the junction region between wire antenna and cylindrical surface, and the eﬀect of the size of the junction region on the cylinder surface on the self-impedance of the attachment point is analysed. The input impedance and radiation pattern of wire antenna and patch array of an L-probe feed mounted on the ﬁnite solid cylinder obtained by the method in this paper agree well with the CST and NEC results.

Abstract—This paper presents the design of a broadband circular polarization truncated horn antenna with single feed. It does not require any complex feeding structure and uses only a coaxial feed extended with a simple electric field coupling probe. The corners of the horn are truncated to generate circular polarization modes, and a broad axial ratio bandwidth which is insensitive to the probe feed dimension is achieved. Simulated and measured results of an S band truncated horn antenna are presented. The antenna has a broad 3 dB axial ratio bandwidth of 26% with aperture efficiency of 60%.

Abstract- A Microstrip patch antenna is designed for coaxial feeding technique for wireless microstrip patch antenna i.e S-Band applications. In this paper the antenna is resonating at 2.8 GHz frequency range which is desired frequency for S-Band range. The frequency range for S-Band is vary from 2700 MHz to 2900 MHz. The proposed antenna is designed by using rectangular type patch for particular feeding technique (coaxial probe feed) is used. From the four feeding techniques, microstrip line and coaxial probe feeds are contacting schemes whereas proximity and aperture coupled feed are non-contacting schemes. The Paper gives a better understanding of design parameters of an antenna and their effect on return loss, S-Parameters, smith chart, radiation pattern, bandwidth, VSWR and resonant frequency. Finally simulation is done using design software HFSS13.0. Keywords- Rectangular microstrip patch antenna, S-Parameters, smith chart, radiation pattern, bandwidth, VSWR, resonant frequency, coaxial probe feed, HFSS.
Previously, a number of CP triangular microstrip antennas have been developed, some of them are reported in [11–13]. However, almost all the developed models implement single-feed type with coaxial probe feeding method, which possess some problems, namely: (1) the CP radiator (patch) from single feed type antenna will generate an unstable current distribution which will impair the performance of axial ratio in array configuration; (2) single feed type antenna is not preferred type for a multipolarization (RHCP and LHCP) array due to the poorer isolation parameter compared to the dual feed type one (3) according to the authors experiences, probe feed implementation is more complex in fabrication process for a CP antenna. A dual feed equilateral triangular microstrip element antenna has superior properties and would be a good element for the CP-SAR implementation.

resonators, and the use of slot antenna geometry -. However, the bandwidth and the size of an antenna are generally mutually conflicting property, that is, improvement of one of the characteristics normally results in degradation of the other. Recently, several techniques have been planned to enhance the bandwidth. A novel single layer wide-band rectangular patch antenna with attainable impedance bandwidth of greater than 20% has been demonstrated . Utilizing the shorting pins or shorting walls on the uneven arms of a U-shaped patch, U-slot patch, or L-probe feed patch antennas, wideband and the dual-band impedance bandwidth have been achieved with electrically small size . Other techniques involves employing multilayer patch structures with parasitic patches of a range of geometries such as E, V and H shapes, which excites multiple resonant modes. On the other hand, these antennas are commonly fabricated on thicker substrates and are large in sizes and difficult to fit into small and slim devices.
A dual-feed dual-polarized dielectric resonator antenna operating at around 5.2 GHz for WLAN applications has been presented in this paper. Two linearly-polarized modes of the antenna are excited by a dual-hybrid-feed structure with a combination of probe and aperture design. To avoid the asymmetric radiation pattern caused by single probe feed, x-directed polarization mode can be symmetrically excited by the technology of a dual-feed system with 180 ◦ phase differences.
This paper presents the radiation performance of two types of antenna: a conventional RPMSA and Inverted E-shape rectangular patch microstrip antenna. The radiation performances of proposed geometries have been compared. The conventional RPMSA offer impedance bandwidth of 2% with maximum gain of 7.84dB at 2.42GHz. The proposed inverted E-shape microstrip antenna integrates four techniques together: Coaxial probe feed, thick air substrate, and slotted patch with inverted structure. The proposed antenna offers a wide impedance bandwidth of 41.5% (covering from 2.1 to 3.2 GHz at VSWR≤ 2), symmetric radiation pattern, and high gain of 9.41dB at 2.42GHz.
One of the techniques proposed is to arrange the antenna elements in a sequential rotation array conﬁguration [1, 2]. This technique signiﬁcantly improves the AR bandwidth, but the design requires additional circuit components such as a wideband power divider with phase quadrature and a much larger circuit board. Another technique which has gained a lot of recognition is using printed wide- slot antennas because of their wider impedance bandwidths than microstrip antennas. The most commonly used wide-slot antennas are the circularly polarized square-slot antennas (CPSSA). Several CPSSAs have been proposed to achieve CP [3–7]. The CP operations of these antennas are achieved by introducing perturbations into the wide slot in the form of feedline [3, 4], slot structure [5, 6], and array conﬁguration . However, antenna conﬁgurations of these designs are so complicated that they lead to complexity in antenna design and fabrication. An L-shaped wide-slot circularly polarized antenna has also been introduced [8–11]. In  and , the CP operation was achieved by introducing a feedline perturbation in the form of an L-probe feed connected to an L-shaped slot through a shorting via connector. Additionally, the corner of the antenna was truncated to introduce extra perturbation to enhance the CP performance. High cross-polarization was also achieved and stated in  that its reduction was subject to further study. In , CP operation was achieved by using an open L-slot and a C-shaped microstrip line. However, proper design and orientation of the C-shaped feedline to achieve CP operation will prove diﬃcult. Even though lower cross-polarization was achieved than  and , a relatively small axial ratio (AR) bandwidth (400 MHz) was achieved. In , a combination of an L-slot and a rectangular slot was also proposed to achieve a wide AR bandwidth. The size of this
The Coaxial feed or probe feed is one of the most common techniques used for feeding microstrip patch antennas. As seen from fig 2.3, the inner conductor of the coaxial connector extends through the dielectric and is soldered to the radiating patch, while the outer conductor is connected to the ground plane.
Coaxial probe feed consisting of a miniature coaxial connector are widely used for microstrip patch antennas. The feed is located on the axis of the patch and its position from the centre of the patch is adjusted for matching. The feed position for this condition is approximately a third of the way between the patch centre and the edge. The geometry of the patch with a probe feed is shown in Fig. 5a and the antenna equivalent circuit is shown in Fig.5b. Fig 5b shows the equivalent circuit that applies to coaxial probe feed; the parallel RLC network represents the resonant patch, while the series inductor represents feed inductance of the coaxial probe .

This paper describes the increment in Bandwidth and Gain of Rectangular Microstrip Patch antenna with Shifted Elliptical slot. First we have designed a Rectangular microstrip patch antenna. After that an elliptical slot is cut inside a rectangular patch which is shifted towards right. The results of both the designs are compared and it was found that an increase in the bandwidth of 21% and gain of 7.21 dBi is being achieved as that of a simple Rectangular microstrip patch antenna. Microstrip patch antenna is designed on a Duroid 5880 substrate with a dielectric constant of 2.2. The antenna is fed by a Coaxial probe feed. The antenna designs and performances are analyzed using Zealand IE3D software. The antenna can be used for many modern communication systems. Keywords: Bandwidth, Gain, Rectangular microstrip patch antenna, Shifted Elliptical Slot rectangular microstrip patch antenna.
Microstrip Line Feeding Method, Aperture Coupled Microstrip ,Feed Method Proximity Coupling Probe Coupling Method: Coupling of power to the microstrip patch antenna can be done by probe feeding method. The inner conductor of the probe line is connected to patch lower surface through slot in the ground plane and substrate material . To get perfect impedance matching we need to find out the location of the feed point over the antenna element. Design simplicity and input impedance adjustment through feed point positioning, makes this feeding method popular. But there are some limitations also like larger lead for thicker substrate, difficulty in soldering for array elements etc.

Defects of TNPEE Examination: 1) At present, there is no special ultrasound probe for TNPEE. Philips S8-3 t probe is a special transesophageal probe for children. Al- though the probe is thin and soft, it is only suitable for some patients. For many patients, the probe can not pass through the nasal cavity. The success rate of the probe passing through the nasal cavity smoothly into the esophagus is relatively low. 2) Most of the patients re- quiring TNPEE are adults. The inner diameter of esophagus is relatively large. The S8-3 t probe is thin and soft. The contact between the probe and the esopha- geal wall is poor, which affects the image clarity.3) TNPEE is a new technique developed in recent years. There are few reports on it, lacking relevant information and experience, and its operation is blindness.4) TNPEE is easy to cause epistaxis in patients, causing panic among doctors and patients, the examination can not be carried out normally and has to be cancelled. 5) Com- pared with traditional TOEE, TNPEE has no obvious advantages in image quality, diagnostic rate and diagnos- tic accuracy. Its application value and prospect are uncertain.
As we all know that at room temperature pure water is a dielectric and has high permittivity at microwave frequencies. Subsequently, by applying the design of the DDPA, a novel DDPA made of water is proposed in this paper. In this water antenna, the antenna operates neither as a conductor for current flow nor as a dielectric resonator. It has just been used to provide a boundary condition similar to that of an electric wall. The required cavity mode can be excited when it is combined with the ground plane. In this paper an L-shaped probe has been used to apply feed to the water dielectric patch antenna. By using the L-probe, it makes the manufacturing of the antenna easy as the probe does not need to be connected to the water patch. Also since the pure water is transparent hence the antenna is also transparent.
of SGE with virus allows precise control of the protein dose and the timing and location of inoculation. On the other hand, SGE is an extract of all proteins in the salivary gland and not just the secreted salivary proteins. We fully acknowledge this limitation; however, we chose not to use mosquito saliva, which can be col- lected artificially by placing the mosquito’s proboscis into a capil- lary tube or by allowing mosquitoes to feed on a sucrose solution through a membrane. Such saliva preparations differ qualitatively and quantitatively from mosquito saliva that is inoculated into the host during a natural blood meal. The mixture of salivary proteins in saliva varies between blood and sucrose feeding (21). This is most likely due to different salivary gland gene expression and salivary secretion in the three lobes of the salivary gland. Genes associated with blood feeding are expressed primarily in the me- dial lobe (22, 23), which has unique innervation (24, 25). Proteins present in the medial lobe are found in saliva collected during blood feeding but are absent from saliva collected during sugar feeding. In addition, the proteins present in artificially collected saliva are substantially diluted (20) and must be precipitated prior to use (26). We published evidence of this dilution in previous studies, which showed that the amount of WNV in artificially collected mosquito saliva is 100-fold lower than the amount of virus inoculated by a mosquito into a live host (19). For these reasons, artificially collected mosquito saliva is infrequently used for in vivo studies, and SGE has been used as a substitute for mos- quito saliva in numerous experimental systems (11, 16, 20, 27– 35). We thus used SGE, which contains secreted salivary factors representative of those obtained by both blood and sugar feeding and which can be produced in sufficient quantities with minimal manipulations that could reduce or eliminate functional activity. Finally, we confirmed our results with SGE by conducting mos- quito spot-feeding studies with one to five mosquitoes, in which the mosquito saliva composition and deposition mimic those as- sociated with a natural blood meal.
Actually, there is another aspect to the possibility that validly cueing an im- pending binding violation could reduce or eliminate the latency impact of un- expected violations that is worthwhile highlighting. It has to do with the recog- nition that the consequences of prime trial binding to future processing in which they participate are mixed; being “beneficial” in reducing RT size when prime and probe processing demands fully match, but “detrimental” when earlier binding is violated (i.e., partial prime repetition). This maladaptive feature of cognition, which runs counter to the notion that we are evolving into a state of intelligent processing design, has been seen before. For example, consider the phenomenon of negative priming in general (e.g., D’Angelo, Thomson, Tipper, & Milliken, 2016; Frings, Schneider, & Fox; 2015) and spatial negative priming (SNP) in particular (e.g., Fitzgeorge, Buckolz, & Khan, 2011). An SNP effect is observed when the RT for a current (probe) target is significantly greater when it arises at a location formerly occupied by a to-be-ignored distractor, relative to when it occurs at a spatial position that was previously (prime) empty. So, when an irre- levant location (i.e., distractor-occupied) becomes relevant (i.e., target-occupied), target RT is interfered with. Interestingly, the negative influence reflected in the SNP phenomenon can be prevented in a number of ways, including cueing the use of the prime distractor response on the probe trial (e.g., Buckolz, Boulou- gouris, & Khan, 2002; Buckolz, Edgar, Kajaste, Lok, & Khan, 2012; Fitzgeorge & Buckolz, 2008). It will be interesting to determine whether this same interference prevention is possible with prime trial binding.
