Hi all,

I am simulating a 60GHz straight F-form antenna by Ansoft HFSS. I use the low-loss Rogers material(loss tangent is 0.0021) as the board material. This F-form antenna resonates around 61GHz(S11) . However, when I tried to get information on radiation efficiency, it turns out that the radiation efficiency is greater than "1". I don't know what's wrong with my modeling and how to improve it. Could anyone give me some advices? Thank you very much! Welcome to contact me via: hopefully81(at)gmail.com

Kevin

Dear sageme,

Check your radiation box size, it should larger and enclosing your structure. Check the operating frequency, in your case, it should be at least 60GHz. Could you please send a figure for your structure model on HFSS?

Hi imodelit_moderator,

My radiation box is at least quarter-wavelength away from the radiating structure. The solution frequency is set to 61GHz, while the frequency sweep range is from 50GHz to 75GHz. From the S11, this F antenna really resonates around 61GHz. By the way, I don't know how to post a figure here....

Thank you very much!

Kevin

Hi Kevin,

Could you please send me your simulation file on marwah.shafee@imodelit.com. Thanks.

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...
