A Quasi-Lumped Element Series Array Resonator Antenna
Relevant Equations for radiation pattern of the Quasi Lumped Element Resonator (QLER) were derived and presented. This paper presents a 6-element series array quasi-lumped element resonator antenna. The proposed antenna employs an interdigital capacitor in parallel with a straight strip conductor whose center finger is shorted across the capacitor. An array configuration is imperative as the gain of a single quasi-lumped element arrangement was only moderate and specifically put at about 9.4dBi which may not be adequate for long distance communications.
