A unified method of moments model is developed for the analysis of arbitrarily shaped antennas that are radiating next to a multilayered dielectric sphere. The curvilinear Rao-Wilton-Glisson triangular basis functions and dyadic Green's functions have been used in the model. Antennas of various geometries including spherical, circular and rectangular microstrip antennas as well as hemispherical dielectric resonators have been modeled. Input impedance and radiation pattern results are presented and shown to be in good agreement with published data.
