Radiation-Enhancement Properties of an X-Band Woodpile EBG and Its Application to a Planar Antenna

Figure 17

Broadside gain of the woodpile-covered patch antenna, , normalized to the broadside gain of the patch alone, , in dB, versus frequency; assumes different values, and the woodpile bars nearest to the ground plane are parallel to the electric field radiated by the patch.
