Simulated and Measured Performance of a Patch Antenna on a 2-Dimensional Photonic Crystals Substrate

Abstract
This paper deals with the use of Photonic Crystal (PC) structures as substrates in patch antenna configurations in order to mitigate the effect of the surface wave mode propagation. The case of a single antenna has been studied. A comparison between a conventional substrate based patch and a patch with a PC as substrate has been performed. The antennas were fabricated and measured. Improvements in all the main parameters of the antenna were obtained when usinga PC. The frequency dependence of the radiation patterns is significantly reduced when using a PC as substrate.
