Abstract

Several broad bandwidth, electrically small, non-Foster element-augmented antennas have been designed, analyzed and measured. Both electric loop (protractor) and electric dipole (Egyptian axe) structures have been selected as the near-field resonant parasitic (NFRP) elements for these antenna designs. In order to increase their instantaneous 10 dB bandwidth, negative impedance convertor (NIC)-based capacitor and inductor elements have been designed accordingly to be incorporated internally into those NFRP elements. Proper design and analysis procedures for these systems are introduced. The simulated performance characteristics of the resulting non-Foster element-augmented protractor and Egyptian axe dipole antennas are presented. Favorable comparisons with their experimentally measured values are demonstrated.
