Abstract

A figure-of-merit for evaluating gain-bandwidth limitations of microstrip patch antennas is proposed and applied to several different geometries. This figure-of-merit has been found to be useful for predicting the requisite properties of artificial materials which might be used to achieve electrically small antennas with remarkable gain-bandwidth performance.
