SIR-based miniaturized EBG structure for millimeter-wave isolation improvement applications
Nov 16, 2016
A new uni-planar compact electromagnetic bandgap (EBG) structure is presented. The proposed EBG unit-cell is designed based on the stepped-impedance resonator (SIR) technique. Results show that the proposed EBG structure provides a wide frequency bandgap around the 60 GHz band. Moreover, results show that the proposed EBG unit-cell has further miniaturization factors of 0.79 and 0.66 compared to conventional uni-planar EBG and uniplanar compact (UC-EBG) structures, respectively.
