Main Article Content
In this article, a frequency selective surface (FSS) based compact wideband printed antenna radiator with improved gain and directivity is proposed for sub-6 GHz 5G wireless networking applications. Due to their inherent property of possessing spatial filtering characteristics, FSSs are attracting the interest of researchers. An approach for increasing the gain and the directivity by integrating a band pass FSS on a compact built patch antenna radiator is proposed here. The architecture equations for designing the band pass FSS using double square loop geometry are defined. The printed patch antenna radiator (PAR) and a double square loop frequency selective surface (DSLFSS) are designed and integrated. The simulation results are verified using the results from the measuring setup. The output response is giving a fractional bandwith of 19.14% with 5.5 dBi gain and 6.2 dBi of directivity and thus makes it the good choice for 5G applications.
