Conversion electrons were detected by mini-orange spectrometer, E0 transitions were observed and the strength of the electric monopole transitions were calculated [10].
The DRA radiates like an electric monopole and the top-loaded modified Alford loop radiates as an equivalent magnetic dipole.
The resultant electric field is polarized along z-direction and thus it leads to a vertically polarized radiation surrounding the radiating structure like a quarter wave electric monopole. Since the elements of the antenna composite TDRA structure effectively produces identical radiation fields at 10.8 GHz, uniform monopole-type pattern can be achieved over the full matching bandwidth.
