Abstract

This paper presents a novel, compact, and high gain metasurface (MS) patch antenna. The antenna structure consists of a slotted square patch in a fractal shape, integrated with a metasurface layer stacked on Taconic RF-30 dielectric material. The individual cells are arranged periodically, creating a 5 x 5-layer configuration. The proposed antenna is designed with physical dimensions of 290 x 290 mm² and achieves a maximum gain of 13.3 dBi at a frequency of 2.2 GHz. Moreover, it achieves a satisfactory minimum reflection coefficient of -10.9 dB. The design process and analysis were performed using the CST MWS simulation software. Based on the performance results obtained from this study, the suggested antenna can be considered suitable for applications in 5G communication.
