Abstract
An inverted microstripline-fed linear tapered slot antenna element and a design of its 16-element E-plane array are presented in this paper. The element is designed using the finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) method. The calculated results show that it has a wideimpedance bandwidth in the K-band. To investigate the E-plane array, the return loss at each element input port, the couplings among elements, and the array's radiation patterns are obtained using the FDTD method. Using a unique three-piece assembled structure, the array is fabricated and tested experimentally. The measured results show that it has a wide bandwidth and antenna efficiency.
