ANTENNA PARAMETERS ENHANCEMENT BY USING ARTIFICIAL MAGNETIC STRUCTURE
Dagmar Faktorová – Peter Omelka – Katarína Isteníková
The paper deals with microwave patch antenna designing using metamaterial structure to enhance the gain and radiation pattern of patch antenna. In the paper are introduced numerical simulations of scattering parameters, which are used for calculation of relative permittivity and permeability for assessment of negative refraction index region of designed metamaterial structure. The parameters of designed patch antenna with metamaterial structure were experimentally verified.
