Author Affiliations +
Metamaterials are artificially engineered microstructures that have strong resonance behavior although their electrical size is very small. Meta-resonator (metamaterial resonator) antennas use the resonance of the metamaterials to reduce the size of radiators and design multiband antennas. A split-ring resonator (SRR) is a well-studied metamaterial structure which obtains negative permittivity and/or permeability in a narrow frequency region. In this paper, metamaterial structures and meta-resonator antennas are designed and simulated using a full wave simulator. 2D metaresonator antennas are fabricated by photolithography and 3D meta-resonator antennas are fabricated by LTCC (Low- Temperature Co-fired Ceramic) technique. A free space measurement system is used to characterize metamaterial samples. Several 2D/3D meta-resonator antennas with SRRs are described.
