A Multilayer-Stacked UWB Yagi Antenna
Paper in proceedings, 2017

By taking advantage of a wideband bow-tie antenna in the Yagi configuration, a novel multilayer-stacked ultra-wideband (UWB) Yagi antenna is proposed. First, the fundamental 3-layered UWB Yagi model is studied with respect to a few critical dimensions. Then, several directors are added to form a multilayer-stacked Yagi antenna, where the width of the directors is optimized in a monotonic decreasing manner. A sixlayered UWB Yagi antenna is studied by simulations. It covers 3.4-10.6 GHz with its return loss better than 10 dB, and it achieves a high directivity up to 13 dBi and a relative cross-polar level better than -10 dB in the whole band.
