A Fabry-Perot resonator cavity antenna for Ku-band application is presented in this paper. The Fabry-Perot cavity is formed by a ground plane and a frequency selective surface (FSS) made of a circular hole array. The cavity resonance is excited by a single-feed microstrip patch located inside the cavity. The measured results show that the proposed antenna has an impedance bandwidth of approximately 13% ($VSWR{leq}2$) and a 3-dB gain bandwidth of approximately 7%. The antenna produces a maximum gain of 18.5 dBi and good radiation patterns over the entire 3-dB gain bandwidth. The antenna's very thin profile, high directivity, and single excitation feed make it promising for use in wireless and satellite communication applications in a Ku-band frequency.
Key words: Directive Antenna, Fabry-Perot Resonator, Frequency Selective Surface
