Abstract

Bandwidth enhancements have been one of the important but tricky niche areas for antennas researchers. There are a bountiful amount of ideas and techniques to accomplish and tackle the problem involved. A creative technique has been explored in enhancing the bandwidth of a rectangular patch antenna by introducing a radial Electromagnetic Band Gap (EBG) structure between a narrowband patch antenna and its ground plane. An increment of up to 8% BW has been realized and achieved. This paper present the methodology, simulations and experimental works carried out in accomplishing the objective above. Microwave Office 2006 software has been used to initially simulate and find the optimum design and results.
