In this paper a new planar metamaterial structure that looks like semi-horse shoe in shape (SSHSS) is designed and simulated. Theoretical analysis of proposed structure done using equivalent circuit theory. Medium effective parameters are extracted using modified NRW approach which proved the metamaterial property of the new unit cell. Radiation pattern, directivity and gain of the new structure were illustrated which gives the possibility of using SSHSS as the antenna. Proposed structure shows multiband characteristics. This antenna shows high directivity (7.92 dBi, 7.86 dBi, 10.11 dBi) and moderate gain (2.55 dBi, 3.90 dBi, 5.07 dBi) at 5.83 GHz, 8.41 GHz, 10.68 GHz respectively. RT duroid is used for fabrication of prototype of the proposed structure. This new structure can be used as metamaterial inspired antenna as well as normal patch antenna. Experimental results shows good agreement with simulated and theoretical results.The proposed structure has been simulated using IE3D electromagnetic simulator.
