Microstrip antennas are among the most popular due to their conformality and ease of fabrication. Their geometry is depicted and consists of a metallized surface residing on a grounded dielectric substrate. They were introduced in the 1950s by Deschamps (Deschamps, 1953) in the USA and by Gutton and Baissinot (Gutton, H. and Baissinot, G., 1955) in France shortly thereafter. However, their practical consideration did not occur till the early 1970s when new demands for compact, low profile and lightweight antennas emerged. This prompted extensive analytical and experimental investigations to accurately compute typical radiation parameters as input impedance, gain, pattern and feed configurations.
