Description

This paper presents a novel and systematic procedure to analyze planar microstrip antennas with anisotropic substrates. Working in the Fourier domain and using the symbolic derivation capability of Mathematica, dyadic spectral Green's functions in compact and closed-form are determined. To better visualize the behavior of these functions, typical 2-D and 3-D graphics are presented. Special attention is dedicated to the radiation characteristic calculation of electric dipoles printed on isotropic and biased ferrite substrates.
