An investigation of meshed printed monopoles for optically-transparent antennas.
In General Assembly of the International Radio Science Union (URSI GASS).
Conference or Workshop Item
Meshed antennas have recently attracted interest for applications where optical-transparency is required . For additively manufactured antennas, the conductive ink used and subsequently the cost of the antenna can be significantly reduced by meshing the antenna’s conductors and ground plane . Despite their wide presence in microstrip patch antennas  and more recently for complex-impedance dipoles , wide-band coplanar waveguide (CPW) antennas have not been explored with meshed radiators or ground planes. In this paper, a 2.4 GHz monopole is designed and characterized numerically and experimentally for various mesh fill-factors, showing over 2.3 dBi measured gain for up to 93% theoretical transparency.
