Abstract

In this paper, a computer aided design of Vivaldi Antenna is developed which is used to study the effect of different parameters such as rate of opening of exponential slot and size of the radius of circular slot of the Vivaldi Antenna. The proposed design resulted in enhancement of gain and reduction in reflection losses. COMSOL Multi physics simulator is used to design the proposed Vivaldi antenna.

Keywords: Vivaldi Antenna; COMSOL Multiphysics; Copper Plate (FR4, 3.38 dielectric value)
