Abstract

A multi-layer partially reflecting surface(PRS) based antenna is proposed. The PRS is designed such that it meets the considerations to increase the broadside directivity of the antenna, yet is suited for manufacturing with a common benchtop 3D printing technology. The resulting antenna is wideband in nature (40% directivity-bandwidth) predicts a best-case improvement of 15 dBi in broadside directivity. Overall, profile of the antenna is 2λ2 , where λ=25mm .
