Rectangular Waveguide Shape Folded Patch Antenna

Research areas: 

A Folded Patch antenna is investigated both theoretically and experimentally. The proposed antenna is very compact, and can be matched to desired impedance without any external matching circuitry.  The proposed antenna also offers EM shielding to the internal PCB. Further, omni directional radiation pattern is obtained which is not feasible on traditional patch antennas.
