In this article is present the structural and dielectric microwave properties of Alumina - CaTiO3 ceramic composite with the addition of CaTiO3 and your performance as a dielectric resonator antenna (DRA). Alumina has a negative temperature variation of resonant frequency coefficient τf, while CaTiO3 has a high positive temperature coefficient. Also influence of calcium titanate on densification and porosity of the composite is presented. The CaTiO3 was added (2.5% to 10% wt. amount) in order to analyze changes in the dielectric properties. Samples were characterized by X-ray diffraction. Dielectric properties were investigated by Hakki-Coleman methods and the experimental characteristics parameters like return loss, bandwidth, and input impedance are presented and compared with numerical simulations. The results obtained shows the formation of secondary phases (Hibonite and TiO2), with the dielectric permittivity and dielectric loss increasing and decreasing with calcium titanate concentration, respectively. The application of DRA was verified and all samples tested presented return loss below -10 dB in the resonant frequency. © 2015 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. Source
