Abstract

A low‐profile printed dipole antenna (PDA) backed by a broadband Giuseppe Peano fractal artificial magnetic conductor (AMC) is introduced for wireless communications. A suggested PDA with a pair of microstrip dipoles excited by an E‐shaped microstrip feedline is used to expand the bandwidth range of 5.5–6.96 GHz (S11 ≤ −10 dB). Then, the suggested Giuseppe Peano fractal AMC surface as a reflector of the antenna is inserted into the PDA to improve radiation efficiency. The PDA with the 4 � 4 Giuseppe Peano AMC array exhibits −10 dB measured impedance bandwidth from 4.25 to 7.10 GHz (50.2%) for the wireless local area network and worldwide interoperability for microwave access (WiMAX) applications. The suggested PDA with AMC compared to the PDA without AMC exhibits a size reduction of 50.5%, enhanced gain up to 8.2 dBi, and excellent impedance matching (at least −19 dB) with uni‐directional radiation patterns. The novel AMC unit cell is realized based on the Giuseppe Peano fractal patch to operate at 6.10 GHz with an AMC bandwidth of 5.15–7.10 GHz (32%). Besides, by loading a 4 � 8 AMC reflector into the twoelement array with diverse polarisations, a low profile wideband printed structure with enhanced radiation properties is achieved. The measured results show the broad bandwidths from 4.3 to 7.05 GHz for two elements with enhanced gains and good isolations between the elements (more than 28.5 dB) for multiple‐input multiple‐output (MIMO) systems.
