Abstract

This paper presents a zeroth order metamaterial substrate integrated waveguide antenna. The antenna is designed to have a compact size based on employing only one composite right/left-handed cell. The antenna resonates at 6.1 GHz with overall radiator size of 14.4 mm × 8 mm2 which represents 50% size reduction compared to conventional microstrip antenna operates at the same frequency. The zeroth order mode of the antenna has been verified using both analytical explanation and full wave simulations. Moreover, the full wave simulations in addition to experimental measurements have been employed to demonstrate the antenna resonance and radiation characteristics.
