The design, fabrication and measurement of a bowtie antenna on a flexible Liquid Crystal Polymer (LCP) substrate is reported in this paper. The antenna is fed by a balun transition which helps improve the gain up to 5.1 dB. The antenna performance is analyzed for both planar and curved substrates. The comparison between simulation and measurements shows a good agreement. This structure can either be used to sense the bending of the substrate or use the bending to tilt the beam. © 2012 IEEE.
