1D dielectric electromagnetic band gap (EBG) resonator antenna design


This article presents a new methodology allowing to design a planar electromagnetic band-pap antenna (choice of theebg material, sizing, feeding). This kind of antenna has already been presented.ebg antennas are very thin (compared with parabolic reflectors) high gain antennas. This article makes easier the realization ofebg antennas whatever the operating frequency, the gain, or still the bandwidth. A study about the sensitivity of the material properties on the performances is also presented. Finaly two exemples using this design method are described.
