Title: Metamaterial-Based Miniaturized Antenna Designs for Ultra-Wide Band Applications
Date: October 27, 2020
Time: 9:30am PT / 12:30pm ET
Presented by: Anil Pandey, Principal R&D Engineer, Keysight Technologies
In modern communication systems the demand for miniaturization and integration of multiple radio systems such as communication system, GPS receivers, 5G, wireless Internet devices operating at multiple frequencies are increasing. These systems using cognitive radio or flexible radio need smaller wideband antennas. The antennas based on metamaterial structures such as high permittivity periodic structures, mushroom, EBG, FSS, composite left/right-handed etc. are capable of greatly improving antenna performance. The use of metamaterials in antenna design not only significantly reduces the size of the antenna but also improve other antenna parameters such as increasing gain, enhancing bandwidth, or generating multiband frequencies of antennas operation. EBG structures which exhibit metamaterial behavior, are used intensively in the application of microstrip antennas. These structures are adopted to reduce surface waves and increase the gain of antennas and it was first introduced as frequency selective surfaces (FSS). This webinar will explain the latest research and development of metamaterials-based antenna technologies for ultra-wide band applications.
Anil Pandey is the principal R&D engineer at Keysight Technologies. He earned his Master of Technology (M. Tech) degree in RF microwave engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT). Before joining Agilent Technologies, he was a research scientist at the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) at the Space Applications Center (SAC), Ahmedabad. He has designed and developed several microstrip and printed antennas for next-generation communication systems. His current research areas of interest include phased array antennas, metamaterial-based antennas, 5G communication antennas, remote sensing antenna arrays, multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) antennas, switched multibeam antenna arrays, reconfigurable antennas using EBG and FSS structures, and automotive and ultrawideband antennas for wireless communications systems. He is the author of the technical book “Practical Microstrip and Printed Antenna Design” published by Artech House.
