Versatile intricate antenna

Abstract : This thesis aims to develop wideband antennas interrelated with a filter, which we have defined as versatile intricate antennas. The antenna is versatile as it provides wide bandwidth (more than one octave) and has the capability to generate two orthogonal polarizations. On the other hand, the filter for harmonic rejection and the matching network are integrated parts of the radiating element and give it the intricate character.The first study is concentrated on designing a dual polarized antenna with a wide stop filter integrated to the feeding network. This filter enables to reject harmonics and unwanted response. The complete structure is compact with a size of 0.9 λ0x0.9 λ0, λ0 being the free space wavelength at the lowest frequency. In order to improve the compactness of the whole system and to cover more standards, we present a single and dual polarized wideband Harmonic Suppressed Antenna (HSA). This work explores the different techniques used to design a HAS. The proposed antenna is simple in structure but versatile in applications. In this approach, radiating element, filter for harmonic rejection and matching network, which are traditionally separated circuits, are incorporated into a single compact unit. The total size of the antenna is 0.53 λ0x0.53λ0. The final chapter aims to study the previous intricate antenna with a new wideband Artificial Magnetic Conductor (AMC) structure as reflector in order to obtain a low profile and directive antenna.
