1304.2919 (Agaram Raghunathan et al.)

An octave bandwidth frequency independent dipole antenna    [PDF]

Agaram Raghunathan, N. Udaya Shankar, Ravi Subrahmanyan
Precision measurements of the spectrum of the cosmic radio background require frequency independent antennas of small electrical dimensions. We describe the design of a wide-band fat-dipole antenna with a sinusoidal profile having a frequency independent performance over the octave band 87.5 to 175 MHz. The input return loss exceeds 15 dB and the radiation power pattern is frequency invariant and close to cosine square over the octave bandwidth. The structure has been optimized using electromagnetic modeling, and the design has been validated by constructing a prototype.
