The theory and implementation of a new family of monopole antennas loaded with composite right/left handed (CRLH) unit cells are presented. The proposed antennas have a number of narrow bands that is twice the number of unit cells and one wide band that is centered around the monopole original frequency. The new operating frequencies are below the original one and they are controlled by the unit cell dispersion relation. The proposed antennas occupy the same Chu sphere as the original monopole… CONTINUE READING
