Abstract
With the idea of having Antennas on chip, this paper
describes an implementation of a micro antenna
fabricated on a silicon substrate in order to have
uniformity in fabrication steps that will help bring down
cost of manufacturing and efficiency of design. We have
also looked into the field of Photonic or Electromagnetic
bandgap (PBG/EBG) structures to increase the efficiency
of the antenna by reducing the material loss and prevent
surface waves to travel through the substrate.
1. Introduction
In today's communication world we look forward to using
mobile devices that are low power, have longer life-span
