Compact Single Layer Travelling-Wave Antenna Design Using Metamaterial Transmission-Lines

Article English OPEN
Alibakhshikenari, Mohammad; Virdee, Bal Singh; Limiti, Ernesto;

This paper presents a single-layer travelling-wave antenna (TWA) that is based on composite right/left-handed (CRLH)-metamaterial (MTM) transmission-line (TL) structure, which is implemented by using a combination of inter-digital capacitors and dual-spiral inductive sl... View more
