This example shows how to create a vivaldi antenna and display the antenna structure.

h = vivaldi
h = 
  vivaldi with properties:

             TaperLength: 0.2430
           ApertureWidth: 0.1050
             OpeningRate: 25
           SlotLineWidth: 5.0000e-04
          CavityDiameter: 0.0240
    CavityToTaperSpacing: 0.0230
       GroundPlaneLength: 0.3000
        GroundPlaneWidth: 0.1250
              FeedOffset: -0.1045
               Conductor: [1x1 metal]
                    Tilt: 0
                TiltAxis: [1 0 0]
                    Load: [1x1 lumpedElement]

show(h)

Figure contains an axes. The axes with title vivaldi antenna element contains 3 objects of type patch, surface. These objects represent PEC, feed.

Create a circular shape and visualize the filled regions.

c  = antenna.Circle;
show(c);

Figure contains an axes. The axes contains 2 objects of type patch. This object represents PEC.

Input Arguments

collapse all

Antenna or array object, specified as a scalar handle.

Shape created using custom elements and shape objects of Antenna Toolbox, specified as an object handle. You can create the shapes using antenna.Circle, antenna.Polygon, or antenna.Rectangle.

Example: c = antenna.Rectangle; show(c)
