By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Journal of Technology -- New research on Microwave and Wireless Technologies is the subject of a report. According to news reporting originating from Constantine, Algeria, by VerticalNews editors, the research stated, "An analytical model is presented to improve the performance of the equilateral triangular microstrip antenna (ETMA). An improved model is presented taking into account the insertion of an air gap between the substrate and the ground plane, and High T-c superconducting material (HTS) for the triangular patch."
Our news editors obtained a quote from the research from the University of Constantine, "The full-wave spectral domain technique in conjunction with the complex resistive boundary condition is used to calculate the characteristics including resonant frequencies, band-widths, and radiation efficiency. Numerical results for the air gap tuning effect on the operating frequency and bandwidth of the high T-c superconducting triangular microstrip antenna (HTSTMA) are presented. The effect of temperature on resonant frequency and bandwidth of the HTSTMA are also given."
According to the news editors, the research concluded: "The computed data are found to be in good agreement with results obtained using other methods."
