Abstract

The height of an EBG-resonator antenna is reduced from half-wavelength to quarter wavelength by employing a highly-reflecting surface (HRS) with in-phase reflection characteristics as the superstrate. A HRS, which has in-phase reflection at 11.8GHz, is presented. Over a 34% bandwidth, its reflection phase is between-90° and 90°, and its reflection magnitude is between-1.5dB and-0.2dB. λ0/4 tall, 42×42mm2 EBG-resonator antenna, designed with this HRS surface as the superstrate, is expected to have 12dB gain and 14.5dB directivity with 6.8% gain bandwidth.
