Abstract

This paper discusses a dual-layer metasurface (MSF) superstrate, consisting of double split-ring resonator cells in the 28 GHz 5G mm-wave frequency band. The MSF superstrate is added above a conventional patch antenna, and an enhancement in the performance of the patch antenna in terms of bandwidth and gain is achieved. This is due to the negative index metamaterial (NIM) properties of the designed MSF superstrate. In this design, the impedance bandwidth is improved from 2.6 GHz to 3.6 GHz, while the gain of the patch antenna is increased from 6.59 dBi to 12.9 dBi. The simplicity of the design to achieve a higher gain and broader bandwidth makes it a suitable candidate for applications in 5G mm-wave communications.
