Abstract

This work deals with the behavior of a patch antenna equipped with squared electromagnetic bandgap (EBG) structures and subjected to various mechanical deformations (twisting and bending deformations). The EBG structures have a stop band frequency (rejection) feature, allowing the coupling and the undesired electromagnetic interferences to be reduced. The influences of the deformations on the mutual coupling and radiation patterns of an antenna equipped of those EBG elements are experimentally studied.
