Epsilon-Negative Transmission-Line-Based Annular-Ring-Loaded Circular Microstrip Antenna With Improved Performances

A novel epsilon-negative transmission line (ENG TL)-based annular-ring-loaded (ARL) circular microstrip antenna (CMSA) is proposed in this letter. Compared to a conventional CMSA, the proposed structure offers improved impedance bandwidth by exciting the TM11 modes on both the driven CMSA and the coupled ENG TL-based annular ring. Due to the enlarged… CONTINUE READING
