The current distribution and radiation pattern of a printed thin-wire circular loop antenna are computed rigorously using an entire-domain moment method analysis. A computationally efficient algorithm using the FFT is implemented. The input impedance of the loop and the far-zone radiation pattern are computed as a function of the substrate dielectric constant and thickness and as a function of the loop circumference. The space-wave launching efficiency and z-directed power gain of the antenna are also computed as a function of the substrate thickness.
