Abstract: This paper is part of a larger project which aims to investigate the fabricational and electromagnetic advantages of creating integrated antenna systems using emerging nanomanufacturing technology. It has been known for several decades that the effective permittivity of a mixture consisting of dielectric inclusions in a host dielectric can be controlled by varying the permittivity, size and spacing of the inclusions. Various authors have developed theoretical equations to analyse these structures but are typically limited to spherical inclusions in a uniform cubic lattice. This paper extends this work from spheres in a uniform mesh to investigate thin metallic inclusions in a dielectric host using a non-uniform lattice (spacing in x, y and z, not the same). Electromagnetic simulations of these structures have been compared to canonical equations of spheres in a cubic uniform lattice with the same volume ratio.
