Abstract:
A metal-insulator-metal (MIM) composite right/lefthanded (CRLH) series mode zeroth order resonant antenna (ZORA) implemented in LTCC technology is presented and demonstrated to exhibit excellent efficiency (71%) and co-to-cross polarization performances, in addition to a high gain (10 dB)provided by its large electrical size of 2*λ_0. Due to its versatile characteristics, high performances and capability to attain at low cost high directivities, conventionally available only with standard arrays, this antenna may find various applications in future.
