Metasurface antennas embedded in small circular cavities for telemetry applications

Abstract : This paper introduces a metasurface-inspired antenna embedded in a circular metallic cavity with a very small diameter (from 0.25 λ0 down to 0.12 λ0, where λ0 is the wavelength in vacuum at the operating frequency). The proposed concept is introduced and explained It consists of placing a capacitive surface at the cavity aperture. This capacitive effect is obtained using multi-layer capacitively coupled strips. Our numerical results demonstrate that the impedance bandwidth is larger than that of standard patch antennas embedded in the same cavity size. Various prototypes have been manufactured, and measurements are found to be in good agreement with numerical results in all cases. The practical applications of these small metasurface antennas are demonstrated with telemetry applications for flying vehicles. © 2019 by the authors.
