Abstract

We present a series of designs for uniplanar electromagnetic bandgap structures for antennas and microwave circuits. The proposed, easy to fabricate configurations, are based solely on metallic surfaces on layer interfaces, without the use of vias or other kinds of vertical connections. Their use in low profile antenna applications and mutual coupling reduction of planar radiating elements is investigated through an efficient and versatile technique, since the only information needed is the reflection phase and the dispersion diagram of the unit cell.
