PRACTICABILITY ANALYSIS AND APPLICATION OF PBG STRUCTURES ON CYLINDRICAL CONFORMAL MICROSTRIP ANTENNA AND ARRAY
An antenna and an array with photonic bandgap (PBG) structures, which are cylindrical conformal microstrip antennas, both operating in X-band (10.2 GHz) are proposed. As shown in the simulation, PBG structures could suppress the surface wave propagating on substrate and balance the influence of cylindrical curvature at resonance frequency on antennas. The simulation results indicate that they have a higher gain and better directivity over the conventional antenna without PBG structure.
