Research Institution
A New Ultra-Wide Band (UWB) Connected Array with Improved wide band Artificial Magnetic Conductor (AMC) using newly available magnetic material is proposed to address the need for a very wide band array antenna. The array supports the low end of the band with very little loss because no termination is used in the design. The AMC permits the array to be electrically and physically thin. The upper end of the band is defined only by the spacing of the feed points needed to suppress grating lobes. A matching UWB splitter network is also proposed to feed the array
