© 2018 IEEE. The designs of compact, low-profile, planar, flexible, directive, quasi-Yagi antennas are presented. By placing near-field resonant parasitic (NFRP) elements around the basic driven dipoles, these NFRP antennas achieve compactness, high efficiency and high directivity. The NFRP elements act either as director or reflector elements, empowering the antenna with desirable quasi-Yagi performance characteristics. These NFRP antennas are fabricated using thin substrates which can be bent without enduring any structure damage. The flexibility of these antennas is investigated under two bending conditions by mounting them on different radii cylinders. These antennas can be used in many advanced applications such as intelligent transportation system (ITS) and wearable devices.
