WHITTOW, W. and VARDAXOGLOU, Y., 2010. Microwave aperture antennas using nanomaterials. IN: Proceedings of the 4th European Conference on Antennas and Propagation (EUCAP 2010), Barcelona, Spain, 12-16 April.
In this paper, computer simulations are used to
investigate the concept of designing microwave aperture
antennas, potentially fabricated using metallic nanomaterials.
Nanomaterials are considered as they facilitate fabrication and
electromagnetic advantages. Aperture radiating structures have
been excited by a plane wave in a microstrip line. The aperture
was modified with the addition of fine scale structures; vertical
strips shorter than the height of the aperture. These initial
simulation results have shown that these fine structures inside
the aperture can decrease the resonance frequency at the expense
of the bandwidth.
