Abstract
This paper presents a detailed review of the latest developments in the design of quasi Yagi antennas, which are suitable for a wide range of wireless applications, including wireless local area networks (WLAN), radio frequency identification (RFID), radio wave detection and ranging (RADAR), medical imaging, airborne, Wi-Fi, Wi-MAX, RF energy harvesting, wireless power transfer (WPT), sensor nodes, access points, and indoor tracking applications. The paper analyzes important parameters of the quasi Yagi antennas in terms of impedance bandwidth, gain, front to back (F/B) ratio, cross-polarization level etc. Further, the quasi-Yagi geometries are reviewed and analyzed concerning their design features such as miniaturization or size reduction, beam scanning/pattern reconfiguration ability, simplification of feed, and combining the filtering and radiation characteristics (filtenna), multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) and reduction of mutual coupling. Among the Yagi antennas reviewed here, the best performance parameters obtained by the researchers so far are an impedance bandwidth of nearly 122%, a peak gain of nearly 13dB, more than 20dB front-to-back ratio and an excellent cross-polarization ratio of -25dB. The limitations of the reported works on Yagi antennas have been discussed and presented.
