Paper Abstract

In this paper, the guidelines for the design of compact transmission-line (TL) metamaterial inspired monopole antennas are presented. The main difference between the proposed setup and the ones already present in the literature, based on phase-compensation phenomena enabled by TL-metamaterials, is that the present structure can be realized in fully planar technology. This peculiar feature allows minimizing the non-idealities introduced by vias and parallel plate capacitors used in conventional setups, which need to be soldered on the board. On the other hand, the proposed radiating devices are characterized by relatively low production costs, due to their planar configuration. The operation principles of the proposed radiators are detailed in the paper, giving the reader the necessary information to perform the design. Some examples are finally presented and tested through proper full-wave simulations performed with CST Studio Suite 2009.
