In this letter, a novel electromagnetic band-gap structure (EBG) with single-ring resonators is inkjet-printed on the commercially available photo paper using conductive nano-silver ink. The printed EBG array is placed above a copper sheet, forming an artificial magnetic conductor (AMC) reflector at the designed frequency range (2.4 ~ 2.5 GHz). A microstrip monopole antenna is backed with the designed AMC reflector and is tested in free space and in contact with a human phantom. The antenna… CONTINUE READING
