Main Article Content
In this paper, we present a rigorous full-wave analysis able to estimate exactly the resonant characteristics of stacked high Tc superconducting circular disk microstrip antenna. The superconducting patches are assumed to be embedded in a multilayered substrate containing isotropic and/or uniaxial anisotropic materials (the analysis is valid for an arbitrary number of layers). London’s equations and the two-fluid model of Gorter and Casimir are used in the calculation of the complex surface impedance of the superconducting circular disks. Numerical results are presented for a single layer structure as well as for two stacked circular disks fabricated on a double-layered substrate.
