Résumé

Les nouveaux services de télécommunication qui vont intégrer multimédia, internet et techniques spatiales nécessiteront l’accroissement des performances d’un segment radio qui met en jeu des antennes de plus en plus intégrées. Durant ces dernières années France Télécom r&d a soutenu l’innovation et la recherche universitaire dans ce domaine grâce à ses actions cti. Son département antennes a effectué des travaux originaux en collaboration avec le leat et l’objectif de cet article est de présenter leurs avancées les plus significatives sur ce thème des antennes miniatures. Le dernier paragraphe est consacré aux perspectives et met en évidence les besoins qui semblent se dégager dans le domaine des antennes pour les dix prochaines années.

Compact telecommunication antennas: Modeling and prospects

Abstract

Next telecommunication systems involving multimé-dia, internet and spatial technics will need improved performances of radio segment. Antenna stands as a critical component more and more integrated that must be designed and optimized taking into account its close environment. During these last years CNET supported R&D in this field through its cti actions involving university research. Its “Antenna department” performed some original work associated with leat. This paper present a review of some of their recent developments involving compact elements. Main issues associated with small antennas are addressed: numerical modeling, increasing the bandwidth, designing dual polarized elements, reducing the size to the max. At last, a large part of the paper is devoted to the prospects and trends in this field for the next future. The conclusion emphasize higher and higher frequencies, imbrication between antennas, active or optical components and signal processing to converge toward smart antennas.
