Analytical methods for AMC and EBG characterizations

Applied Physics A (Impact Factor: 1.69). 06/2011; 103(3):805-808. DOI: 10.1007/s00339-011-6255-x

ABSTRACT AMC and EBG behaviors are respectively characterized by reflection phase method and dispersion diagram. A fast and simple analytical model based on transmission line theory is proposed for each analysis. The validity of these analytical methods is verified by a comparison between circuit representations, measurements and numerical results.

    ABSTRACT: A flexible uniplanar Artificial Magnetic Conductor (AMC) design is presented. FEM simulations used to design and analyze the performance of the AMC structure are shown. Its performance under flat and bent conditions is characterized by means of reflection coefficient phase measurements of a manufactured prototype in an anechoic chamber. Broad AMC operation bandwidth and polarization angle independency is found for the prototype in both flat and bent situations. In addition, its angular margin under oblique incidence operation is also measured.

    ABSTRACT: A novel flexible uniplanar AMC design is presented. An AMC prototype is manufactured using laser micromachining and it is characterized under flat and bent conditions by measuring its reflection coefficient phase in an anechoic chamber. The designed prototype shows broad AMC operation bandwidth (6.96% and higher) and polarization angle independency. Its angular stability margin, when operating under oblique incidence, is also tested obtaining ± 8 ° as limit for a 14.4 cm × 14.4 cm prototype.
