Abstract: A comparative study of radiation characteristics of a polarized switchable microstrip planar array of triangular patch antenna printed on synthesized LiTiMg ferrite substrate with a normal magnetic bias field has been done and reporting here. Radiation patterns and some important characteristics of proposed array antenna have been compared with the same geometry printed on RT-duroid and silicon. 61% miniaturization and high quality factor are some advantages of using LiTiMg ferrite compare to RT-duroid. With the biasing of external magnetic field perpendicular to the ferrite substrate arise some tunable behavior which has been elaborated by the generation quasi TEM, magnetostatic and spin waves. In this analysis spin wave exchange term (ωr) which depends upon the static internal field (Hex), has also included in the dispersion formula because the wavelength of microwave approach the inter-atomic distance of ferrite material which is the main cause of generation of spin waves in such types of layered structures.
