Abstract This work aimed at developing new solutions in terms of innovative feed designs and mounts for practical applications of microstrip and dielectric resonator antennas (DRAs). The investigation explores and establishes a strong relation between the impedance variation over the full operating band of a microstrip patch and its cross-polar radiations, thereby proposing engineered feed to obtain optimised cross-polar radiations. DRAs are the latest high-efficient non-metallic antennas. The challenge of DRA deployment without using a chemical glue/adhesive has been addressed. A mechanically stable glueless DRA design has been proposed.
