    Abstract: This article shows that use of artificial dielectric in form of two-dimensional array consisted of small plates can transform electrical input impedance of printed biconical vibrator in ultra-wide bandwidth and improve quality of its matching. It is also found that use of this artificial dielectric eliminates deep dip in radiation pattern of planar... Show More
