Dynamic Analysis of Superconductor at High Temperature for Antennas Array

H C C Fernandes, L M Caetano, H M C A Maia


The analysis and new results of the resonance frequency and radiation pattern of antennas array, for glass fiber FR-4 substrate using superconductor and copper patch, are presented. The linear superconducting rectangular antennas array uses the new materials SnBaCaCuOy at temperature of 160 K with conductivity equal 1.5 x 105 S/m. The concise full wave Transverse Transmission Line (TTL) method is used in the analysis and to obtain some results. The HFSS is also used and new results for the reflection coefficient (S11), return loss as functions of the resonant frequency, and pattern radiation of antennas array, are presented.
