This paper introduces a topology optimization method for the structural design of multiband broadband Dielectric Resonator Antennas (DRAs), based on time domain analysis using the FDTD method. Moreover, structural mechanics and fabrication constraints are simultaneously considered in order to obtain manufacturable and self supporting antenna design.
