Abstract


The propagation characteristics of the rectangular
microstrip patch antenna on metamaterial substrate are
determined via full wave method, Transverse Transmission
Line – TTL. Compared to other full wave methods, the TTL
is an efficient tool to determine the resonant frequency,
making possible a significant algebraic simplification of the
equations involved in the process. Numerical results of
resonant frequencies and return loss are found as functions
of the metamaterial properties.
