Abstract

Electromagnetic Band Gap (EBG) surfaces have been of intense interest in recent years given their ability to suppress the propagation of electromagnetic waves in a frequency band. This suppression of electromagnetic waves leads to an enhancement of the maximum gain when a microstrip patch antenna is placed above one of these surfaces. However, this comes at the expense of complexity of construction of the antennas, because many of these designs include a large number of vias. As an alternative, we are proposing a new design that uses a ferrite ring to enhance the antenna gain without compromising the antenna bandwidth.
