Low-profile planar eleven antenna over a magnetic plane
Paper i proceeding, 2016

The eleven antenna has been greatly used in many applications to achieve low reflection coefficient and stable-pattern over ultra-wide-bands. However, arraying in the eleven configuration forces the antenna designer to tilt the antenna over an electric conducting ground plane, and this makes it mechanically complicated and increases the profile of the antenna. Seeking new capabilities, the theory of putting log-periodic dipoles in the eleven configuration over magnetic ground is developed. The eleven antenna is formed by two printed folded-dipoles, and we evaluate the performance for a single-pair of dipoles and five-pairs of dipoles. The results are extracted for the cases of PEC ground, PMC ground and without ground. The results are in a good agreement with theory. Also, some discussions are provided for the realization of the artificial-magnetic-ground.
