The rectangular patch antenna is very probably the most popular microstrip antenna geometry implemented by designers. The Chapter begins by discussing the transmission line model and the cavity model before going on to look at the radiation pattern of a linear rectangular patch, quarter-wave microstrip antennas, efficiency, dielectric cover microstrip antennas' design, circularly polarized antennas, EM coupled antennas, ultra-wide antennas, and cross-polarization.
