Abstract: This paper considers the design of microwave patch antennas using bespoke substrates. The permittivity of the substrate is controlled by inserting small scale metallic inclusions into a host medium and can be obtained using an S-parameter inversion algorithm on the results of plane-wave simulations. Electromagnetic simulations have been used to compare the performance of the patch on the heterogeneous substrate to standard homogeneous substrate.
