Patch Antenna for 1420MHz Radio Telescope

Abstract [en]

Patch antenna is one of the most rapidly popular topics in the antenna field in the past twenty years. In high-performance aircraft, spacecraft, satellite and missile applications, where size, weight, cost, performance, ease of installation, and aerodynamic profile are constraints, low profile antennas may be required. [7].

The project is to develop a single patch antenna operating on a specific frequency 1420MHz. The frequencies near to 1420MHz are worth to observe because the hydrogen in throughout of the space can be mapped by the observation of the 21 – cm wavelength line which is corresponding to 1420 MHz radiation. The final product antenna will be used in a radio telescope as a part of the signal receiving system.

The work within the project contains simulation, fabrication and test of final antenna. The simulation work was carried out in advanced design system which is developed by Agilent technologies, USA. The most different feature of the project is that, comparing to normal patch antenna, usually 50 ohms is selected as the matching impedance, while in this project we made it conjugate to the input impedance of the LNA. In this way we can save extra components, as well as energy consuming.
