Abstract

The design and the results of a single slot coupled substrate integrated waveguide SIW fed membrane antenna loaded with a superstrate layer are presented for 94 GHz communication system. The membrane antenna is designed using ANSYS HFSS and consists of 6 layers. The microstrip patch antenna MPA placed on the top pyralux substrate layer is excited by means of a longitudinal rectangular slot placed over the SIW structure in the bottom pyralux substrate. The simulated antenna impedance bandwidth is found to be 5 GHz 91.5–96.5 GHz with a gain of 7 dBi. In order to improve the gain a superstrate layer is added above the membrane antenna. The maximum gain achieved is 14.4 dBi with an efficiency of 77.6% at 94 GHz. The results are verified using CST Microwave Studio and are found to be in good agreement.
