Abstract


The objective of this work is to design a printed antenna that has at once a low profile, a wide bandwidth and a high gain. In order to achieve this objective, this paper has based its study on the theory of Electromagnetic Band Gap (EBG) structures where the EBG structure is exploited as the ground plane of the antenna. In a first part, the geometry and the electromagnetic performances of the printed antenna originally designed on classic ground plane will be described. In the second part, the results obtained for this antenna designed on ground plan based on a new EBG structure proposed are illustrated. In the last section, a comparison between the results obtained can be found, in which the improvements brought by the new EBG structure are illustrated.
