A wideband hybrid dielectric resonator antenna (DRA) consisting of a rectangular slot patch and a perforated stacked cylindrical dielectric resonator (DR) is proposed. A rectangular slot was etched on the grounding side of a microwave laminate (εs = 3.38) to excite the hybrid resonator at a high frequency. The stacked DR used consists of three different layers of permittivity, in which air-cavity was introduced internally to form a perforated structure. With a proper stacking arrangement of the perforated DRs on top of the rectangular slot, their operating frequencies were merged together to produce a wideband hybrid DRA. It was found that the combination of the stacked DR with perforated structure in the hybrid element had yielded an impedance bandwidth of as wide as 75.8% (12.2 GHz - 27.1 GHz). Huge improvement in bandwidth was successfully achieved in this study in comparison to that without a perforated structure of only 48.9%. Simulation of the antenna was performed in time domain using Computer Simulation Technology (CST) and was subsequently verified with the measurement results. The average simulated and measured directivity of the antenna were recorded to be 6.05 dBi and 5.65 dBi, respectively, with a stable broadside radiation throughout the operating range of frequency. The radiation characteristics were seen to be broadside in both the E-plane and H-plane. © 2020 Oxford University Press. All rights reserved.
