20. Broadband antenna matching using real frequency wideband matching techniques

The ever increasing bandwidth in telecom systems require wideband antennas. However, it is known that e.g. patch antennas are typically narrowband resonating structures. Luckily, it is possible to synthesize a broadband frequency matching to an arbitrary impedance using a state-of-the-art synthesis method, namely the real frequency technique. This thesis aims to start from an “arbitrary” frequency response of a resonating patch antenna and to determine, realize and measure a matching network for this antenna. Needless to say is that one therefore needs to perform an in-depth study of the (state-of-the-art) real frequency matching technique.
