Abstract

It is well-known that if a (horizontal) electric dipole antenna is placed on the interface between a high permittivity dielectric and air, it will radiate a majority of its power into the dielectric rather than into the air region. This basic physics effect is a significant roadblock to achieving efficient on-body and on-chip antennas. The future 5G outlook includes numerous Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices that involve both types of antenna systems. It will be described herein and in my presentation how one can use metamaterial-inspired Huygens dipole antennas to achieve systems that radiate primarily into the air region rather than into the dielectric.
