Dielectric Resonator Antennas (DRAs) propagate electromagnetic waves by setting up resonant modes determined by their physical geometry and excitation feeds. Just as preferential directions of radiation can be designed for conductive antennas; it was thought that far field radiation pattern of DRAs could be manipulated similarly using different dielectrics. Two types of mixed dielectric antennas were investigated i) a variable dielectric discontinuity ii) air and solid dielectric mix.
