Planar Dipole Antenna on Liquid Crystal Polymer Substrate at 2.4 GHz
Liquid crystal polymers are the low cost, flexible structured and low weight substrate materials for making antennas. Liquid crystal polymers are excellent dielectric materials having good electrical, mechanical properties which suites in the application of microstrip patch antennas. In this paper liquid crystal polymer with dielectric constant 3.16 is used as substrate material for planar dipole antenna designed to operate at 2.4 GHz. Ansoft-HFSS software is used to simulate the proposed model and obtained the return loss, input impedance, 3D-gain, 2D-gain total, radiation patterns in E and H planes, E-field and H-field distribution results.
