Metamaterials are offering a whole new paradigm shift to the design of antennas, promising some amazing new features, capabilities and form factors. However, up till now many of these fantastic improvements are only available in relatively narrow bandwidths. A new metamaterial implementation is proposed that integrates the science of Ultra-wide Band (UWB) antennas with metamaterials in a unique way to obtain UWB performance. The implementation can be used to create very low profile UWB antennas. Furthermore the design can also be case to reduce the size of other antennas as well. With the integration of new dielectric and magnetic materials, a conformal low profile UWB is realizable.
