Electromagnetic bandgap (EBG), periodic structures, microstrip structures
Propagation of the electromagnetic waves in media with electromagnetic properties varying along the direction of the propagation presents interesting features, like the presence of pass/stop bands. Here a single layer microstrip structure is considered, where the width of the line is varied in order to obtain a sinusoidally modulated value of the effective dielectric constant. Continuous and discrete line configurations are considered, and the performances with respect to the uniform case are compared.
