Abstract

The electromagnetic bandgap (EBG) structure, also called photonic bandgap structure, consisted by triangular arrays of air columns on the dielectric structure is designed and studied by using the FDTD method. According to the simulated and measured results, the EBG structure effectively suppressing surface wave for TE and TM modes is designed. The optimized EBG structure is presented.The proposed EBG structure is applied to the fourelement microstrip patch array antenna. As results of simulation and measurements, the impedance bandwidth and the gain of proposed EBG patch array antenna are improved.
