Project

Metamaterial one dimension transmission line new proposed microstrip design

Project (M.S., Electrical and Electronic Engineering)--California State University, Sacramento, 2018.

Communication is important in society and antennas are needed to communicate effectively 
 across large distances. Currently, the demands of transferring more data at a faster rate and over vast 
 distances require new technology. One new proposed technology is metamaterials. This project 
 introduced and examined metamaterials previously proposed in published literature using ADS and 
 HFSS. Furthermore, this project proposed a new change to the published metamaterials by replacing 
 interdigital capacitor with metal-insulator-metal capacitor and stub inductor with spiral inductor. The new 
 proposal is then designed and simulated with Keysight ADS, Mathworks MATLAB, and Ansoft HFSS. 
 The results show that the new design is more symmetric with greater peak directivity and peak gain at its 
 center frequency.
