The use of photonic materials has been used in the theory of optical waves. The PBG (Photonic Band Gap) theory and material, was developed recently for optical frequencies and can be easily applied to millimeter waves, microwaves and planar antenna frequencies. The presence of photonic materials as substrate in antennas, has some good characteristics such as, suppression of light spontaneous emission and suppression of surface waves, allowing the application in planar antenna array. In this… CONTINUE READING
