Abstract

This paper discusses the design and analysis of planar circularly symmetric (PCS) electromagnetic band gap (EBG) structures for reducing the surface waves excited by printed antennas on dense dielectric substrates. The key advantage of the circularly symmetric geometries is that a surface wave generated by a source located at its center experiences the same band gap effect in all radial directions. To obtain simple design rules of the PCS-EBGs for the optimization of the bandwidth, an equivalence is established between 2-D-EBGs and PCS-EBGs. Integrated planar printed antennas with bandwidths up to 20% are designed, manufactured and tested.
