Left Handed Metamaterial, Microstrip Antenna, Metal Wire, Square Rectangular Split Ring
The speculation and invention of Left-Handed Meta Material (LH MTM) had sparked the interest of many researchers globally and was said to help increase the gain and directivity of the microstrip antenna. herefore, the scope of this project was to design, simulate a LH MTM structure in order to proof the claims. The combination of the Square Rectangular Split Ring and the Thin Wire Structure was used to btain the negative value of permeability, µ and the negative permittivity, e From the simulation done, the gain of the antenna has been increased to 1 dB. This had proven that the focusing effect of the LH MTM really enhance the gain of the antenna.
