Abstract / Description

Next generation of wireless mobile systems calls for more compact and multiband antennas. This is because such systems need to be small and can operate over multiple wireless communication standards. The design and development of miniature antennas that function over a wideband are highly challenging. In this chapter, novel antenna designs are presented, which provide a solution to this deficiency. These antennas are based on composite right‐/left‐handed transmission line (CRLH‐TL) metamaterials. Unlike traditional right‐handed (RH) transmission materials, metamaterials based on left‐handed (LH) transmission lines have unique features of antiparallel group and phase velocities. Pure LH transmission lines cannot be implemented due to the existence of RH parasitic effects that occur naturally in practical LH transmission lines. In this chapter, novel CRLH transmission line structures are presented, which include righthanded parasitic effects.
