Comparative Analysis Of Patch And Bow-Tie Antenna For Infrared Energy Harvesting
Abstract— This paper presents the design of antennas in THz range which corresponds to mid-infrared frequencies. A
comparative study on two different antenna types, which are Patch and Bow-Tieis discussed here, to clearly elucidate the
effect of geometry on received output terminal voltage. The frequencies of operation of the two antenna types are nearly in
the same range in order to provide an effective means for comparison on the voltage output. The resonance of these
structures is around 10 micrometer wavelength, which is the peak of IR radiations reaching earth surface. Various parametric
analyses on the bow-tie antenna are performed to obtain an optimized voltage output. The simulations of the designs are
done on an FEM based solver.
