EM Field Enhancement for Array Antenna by Using the Array of EBG Cells
In this paper the mutual coupling in array antennas where the mutual coupling resulting poor radiation efficiency is minimized with the help of a single line of EBG structure. In general each element in the array antenna produce their respective radiation and the final pattern will be the superimposition of all these individual patterns, in this process some of the components in the space wave vector of one element may cancel the neighbour element components this implies the loss of energy. Now in the current paper the problem is rectified by introducing a single line of EBG structure and the comparative analysis is illustrated in this paper.
