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

Figure 19

E- and H-plane radiation patterns (dB) of the woodpile-covered patch antenna, normalized to its maximum value;  mm, and the bars nearest to the patch are parallel to the electric field. Experimental results for the patch and curves obtained by using HFSS are reported, for comparison.
