equiangular spiral antenna

equiangular spiral antenna

[¦ē·kwē¦aŋ·gyə·lər ¦spī·rəl an′ten·ə]
(electromagnetism)
A frequency-independent broad-band antenna, cut from sheet metal, that radiates a very broad, circularly polarized beam on both sides of its surface; this bidirectional radiation pattern is its chief limitation.

Dispersive or non-dispersive antennas have been commonly used for GPR systems, such as dipole antenna, Bow-tie antenna, TEM horn antenna, Vivaldi or tapered slot antenna (TSA), and equiangular spiral antenna [2].
An example for such a case is that shown in Figure 3 for a triangular patch model of a two-arm planar equiangular spiral antenna. A zoom-in view focused on the central part of the antenna is presented in Figure 4(a).
From a theoretical point of view (Maxwell's equations), the planar equiangular spiral antenna is one of the simplest types of wideband planar antennas.
The authors propose to insert two layers of artificial materials, generated by particle swarm optimization, between an equiangular spiral antenna and the ground, in order to achieve both directional radiation pattern and high gain.

To offer an easy method for designing and optimizing low-profile CP directional antennas, we proposed a universal scheme along with a discrete meshing optimization method to generate two optimized 2D parasitic layers, which acts as a metamaterial between the existed equiangular spiral antenna and the ground plane to achieve good radiation performance.
We take an equiangular spiral antenna as an example to make this process more detailed.
Common external antennas include Archimedes and planar equiangular spiral antennas [10-12].
