ABSTRACT When periodic structures interact with electromagnetic waves
amazing features result. In particular, characteristics such as
frequency stop-bands, pass-bands and band-gaps could be identified.
Surveying the literature, one observes that various terminology have
been used depending on the domain of the applications. These
applications are seen in filter designs, gratings, frequency selective
surfaces (FSS), photonic crystals and band-gaps (PBG), etc. We classify
them under the broad terminology of “electromagnetic band-gaps
(EBG)”. The focus of this paper is to present a powerful
computational engine utilizing finite difference time domain (FDTD)
technique integrated with the Prony method to analyze and understand the
unique propagation characteristics of different classes of complex EBG
structures such as, (a) FSS structures, (b) PBG crystals, (c) smart
surfaces for communication antenna applications, (d) surfaces with
perfectly magnetic conducting properties (PMC), (e) creation of
materials with negative permittivity and negative permeability, (f)
surfaces with reduced edge diffraction effects, and (g) the notion of
equivalent media. The performance of two types of the EBG structures
namely, single and multi-layered tripod FSS, and rectangular, triangular
and woodpile PBG crystals is detailed. Some of the potential
applications of these structures are highlighted

    ABSTRACT: The concept of using Electromagnetic Band Gap (EBG) structures is to provide excellent suppression of noise or interference (EMI) at GHz frequencies. In this work, a 3x3 spiral EBG planar structure was developed to achieve suppression of electromagnetic interference covering frequency range of 4 to 6 GHz considering the integration of EBG structure into the High Speed printed Circuit Board design (HSPCB).

    ABSTRACT: In this paper planar and compact band stop filter using split ring resonator (SRR) metamaterial is proposed. Band stop type attenuation is presented from L-to X-band. Low insertion loss in the pass band and high attenuation in the stop band can be considered as the advantage of this filter. Filter characteristics of SRR is presented using microstrip line. Here SRR is introduced in the substrate layer of microstrip line. It has been observed that the rejection level of the filter in stop band goes on increasing as we increase the number of SRR in the structure. Size of SRR is much less than the operating wavelength thereby several SRR can be introduced in substrate layer to provide a compact structure with high rejection level in the stop band. The frequency of filtering depends on the dimensions of SRR. The effect of varying the dimensions of SRR on the filtering frequency is also presented in this paper. It has also been observed by Nicolson-Ross-Weir approach that at the filtering frequency, value of relative permeability as well as relative permittivity for this structure is negative. This confirms that this structure behaves as a Left Handed medium.

    ABSTRACT: Bu çalışmada taban iletkeni kusurlu yapıların mikroşerit filtre tasarımı üzerine etkileri incelenmiştir. Öncelikle tasarımın amaç fonksiyonları belirlenmiş olup, kesim frekansı 2 GHz olan , 5. dereceden Chebyshev tipinde alçak geçiren filtre karakteristiğine sahip bir mikroşerit filtre tasarlanmıştır. Tasarlanan mikroşerit filtrenin taban iletkenine periyodik olarak halter biçimli ve uçları farklı geometrili çeşitli kusurlar açılmıştır. Açılan bu kusurların her bir uzunluğunun filtre karakteristiğine etkileri incelenmiştir. Periyodik olarak açılan kusurların sayısı ve kusurlar arasındaki mesafe değiştirilerek filtre karakteristiğinin değişimi elde edilmiştir. Taban iletkenine açılan kusurlar sonucu elde edilen filtre karakteristiği amaç fonksiyonu kabul edilerek, aynı tasarım adımları ile yeni bir mikroşerit filtre tasarlandığında daha büyük devre boyutuna gereksinim duyulduğu görülmüştür. Taban iletkenine açılan kusurların devre boyutunu optimize etmekte faydalı olduğu görülmüştür. Üç boyutlu modellemede HFSS ve SONNET elektromanyetik benzetim programları ve hesaplamalarda özel olarak yazılan MATLAB kodları kullanılmış olup, saçılma parametreleri, ilgili benzetim programları yoluyla elde edilmiştir. HFSS ve SONNET elektromanyetik benzetim programları ile elde edilen sayısal sonuçların tutarlı olduğu görülmüştür.
