Knitted, textile, high impedance surface with integrated conducting vias

Article English OPEN
Tennant, A; Hurley, W; Dias, T;

An experimental, microwave high impedance surface (HIS) manufactured from a combination of both conducting and insulating yarns using commercial, computerised flat-bed knitting machines is presented. The HIS consists of a knitted, conducting ground plane, a polyester sp... View more
