1. Introduction

Microstrip patch antennas are being widely used for small wireless communication aerospace applications WiMAX, WLAN, and 5G applications. This antenna is compact shapes like rectangular, circular, and triangular. A patch antenna is designed on a dielectric substrate such as RT duroid 5880 with dielectric constant 2.2. The thickness of this dielectric substrate is 0.5 mm. Lightweight and easy to design and fabricate [1] [2]. It can be designed in different this dielectric substrate is 0.5 mm. If we use a substrate of higher thickness efficiency can be increased, however, as the height increases, surface waves are introduced which usually are not desirable because they extract power from the total available for direct radiation (space waves). The surface waves travel within the substrate and they are scattered at bends and surface discontinuities, such as the truncation of the dielectric and ground plane, and degrade the antenna pattern and polarization characteristics. Surface waves can be eliminated, while maintaining large bandwidths, by using metamaterials. If the impedance of the antenna does not match with the impedance of a transmission line then there will be a reflection of the signals and it causes high return loss and which will lead to bad communication. To avoid the problem of return loss, the antenna impedance should be matched with the transmission line impedance. To increase the bandwidth of patch antenna arrays can be used. Bandwidth also can be increased by loading metamaterial on a microstrip patch antenna. The authors have designed and simulated an Edge port-fed rectangular patch antenna and Circular patch antenna for a 5G application using FEKO software. RT duroid 5880 a high-frequency laminate is used for designing a Patch antenna. The metamaterial-based Rectangular microstrip patch antenna (RMPA) is simulated and bandwidth, return loss, and gain are measured. Optimization is done by using FEKO software. Mu (single) negative metamaterial cells are loaded on the ground plane of the rectangular and circular patch antenna. A significant improvement in patch antenna parameters has been observed [3] [4] [5] [6].

2. Metamaterials

2.1. Double Negative or Left-Handed Metamaterials

They are artificial materials that show negative permittivity permeability and refractive index. These parameters are not found in natural materials. Due to the negative refractive index, phase velocities, as well as group velocity of electromagnetic waves are opposite to each other, and opposite energy flow is observed. Metamaterials having either permittivity or permeability negative are called single negative metamaterials. Equations (1) and (2) are two of Maxwell’s equations given to understand metamaterial. *µ _{r}* and
${\epsilon}_{r}$ are relative permeability and permittivity respectively.

$\nabla \times E=-{\mu}_{0}{\mu}_{r}\frac{\partial H}{\partial t}$ (1)

$\nabla \times H=-{\epsilon}_{0}{\epsilon}_{r}\frac{\partial E}{\partial t}$ (2)

where ${\epsilon}_{r}$ and ${\mu}_{r}$ are relative permittivity and permeability respectively and Equation (3) is a wave equation derived from the above equation.

${\nabla}^{2}E=-{\epsilon}_{0}{\mu}_{0}{\epsilon}_{r}{\mu}_{r}\frac{{\partial}^{2}E}{\partial {t}^{2}}$ (3)

If ${\epsilon}_{r}$ and ${\mu}_{r}$ are considered as real numbers, then one can observe that the wave equation does not change when signs of ${\epsilon}_{r}$ and ${\mu}_{r}$ are simultaneously changed. The Drude Lorentz model describes the material properties in classical electromagnetic. The effective permittivity and permeability are given in Equations (4) and (5) respectively.

${\epsilon}_{eff}=1-\frac{{f}_{p}^{2}}{{f}^{2}-j\gamma f}$ (4)

${\mu}_{eff}=1-\frac{{f}_{mp}^{2}{f}_{0}^{2}}{{f}^{2}-{f}_{0}^{2}-j\gamma f}$ (5)

The plasma frequency is denoted by *f _{p}* and

The SSRR Structure is designed using MATLAB code. In this way, a metal surface is obtained, as shown in Figure 1. The equivalent circuit for SSRR is presented in Figure 2. The inductance of the tank circuit model, Ls is calculated

by assuming the uniform current throughout the loop. The capacitance of the tank circuit is assumed to be the parallel equivalent of the capacitances in each pair of adjacent loops. The SSRR creates a negative µ near resonance frequency. The magnetic field vector of the incident plane wave is perpendicular to the SSRR, which gives rise to the induced currents resulting in an effective magnetic moment that eventually will yield the negative permeability. The metamaterial supported backward-wave propagation only for the magnetic field directed perpendicular to the SSRR. We have presented the retrieval of parameters of a metamaterial cell using MATLAB to verify the mu negativity of a cell. The inherent feature of CST is used to invoke the CST platform through MATLAB script file [9] [10].

2.2. Design of Square Split Ring Resonator Cell

The SSRR is designed on RT Duroid 5880 substrate with a permittivity value equal to 2.2 and thickness equal to 0.5 mm. The dimensions of 1 × 1 mm SSRR cell are, *L* = 0.9 mm, *b* = 0.68 mm, *s* = 0.05 mm, *d* = 0.06 mm, and *e* = 0.13 mm. The resonance frequency is inversely proportional to the dimensions of the metamaterial cell and directly proportional to strip width and slit width. *S*_{11} and *S*_{21} of SSRR cell are depicted in Figure 3. The lowest magnitude of *S*_{11} indicates that the cell resonates at 26 GHz frequency. The Magnitude of *S*_{11} and *S*_{21} at 26 GHz frequency is 0.2 and 0.78 respectively, which shows that return loss is low at the resonance frequency. Both S parameters are important to calculate the epsilon and mu of the cell. Frequency v/s real and imaginary values of mu are plotted using MATLAB software.

RT/duroid 5880 glass microfiber reinforced PTFE composites are designed for high frequency microstrip circuit applications. The dielectric constant of RT/duroid 5880 laminates is less (2.2) likely to demonstrate a dielectric breakdown at high frequency. It is uniform over a wide frequency range. As dielectric constant decreases bandwidth increases. Its low dissipation factor (0.0009) extends

the usefulness of RT/duroid 5880 laminates to Ku-band and above. RT/duroid 5880 laminates are easily cut, sheared and machined to shape. They are resistant to all solvents and reagents, hot or cold, normally used in etching printed circuits or in plating edges and holes.

2.3. Parameters of SSRR Metamaterial Cell

*S*_{11} and *S*_{21} of SSRR cell are depicted in Figure 3. The lowest magnitude of *S*_{11} indicates that the cell resonates at 26 GHz frequency. The Magnitude of *S*_{11} and *S*_{21} at 26 GHz frequency is 0.2 and 0.78 respectively, which shows that return loss is low at the resonance frequency. Both S parameters are important to calculate the epsilon and mu of the cell. Frequency v/s real and imaginary values of mu are plotted using MATLAB software.

Real and imaginary number of Mu of SSRR is shown in Figure 4. The negative mu appears in the frequencies between 24.8 GHz to 4 GHz. Therefore the antenna on metamaterial must be designed to operate within the range of frequencies. Hence, in this project, we considered a resonance frequency of 26 GHz. which is one of the frequency bands used for 5G applications.

2.4. Method to Find Parameters of Metamaterial Cell of Complex Structure

It is sometimes difficult to calculate the effective parameters of certain metamaterials, due to the complex structure. In such cases, parameters can be found out from numerical simulations. First, we have to find out the transmission and reflection coefficient of the cell based on numerical algorithms, such as (FDTD) and Finite Element Method (FEM). This method also can be used to extract parameters [10]. Equations (7) and (8) are used to calculate refractive index and impedance, from transmission coefficient (*S*_{21}) and reflection coefficient (*S*_{11}).

${Z}_{eff}=\pm \sqrt{\frac{{\left(1+{S}_{11}\right)}^{2}-{\left({S}_{21}\right)}^{2}}{{\left(1-{S}_{11}\right)}^{2}-{\left({S}_{21}\right)}^{2}}}$ (7)

${e}^{inkod}=\frac{{S}_{21}}{1-{S}_{11}\left[\frac{\left(z-1\right)}{\left(z+1\right)}\right]}$

where *k*_{0} is the wave vector in a vacuum, defined as *k*_{0} = 2*π*/*ω _{o}*,

3. Application of Metamaterial in Designing Edge Port Fed Rectangular Microstrip Patch Antenna

Antennas are fabricated using DNG or SNG Metamaterial cells, which is used to increase the performance of the system. These cells could substantially increase the gain and radiated power of an antenna. Furthermore, these antennas can improve efficiency bandwidth performance. Various metamaterial-based antennas can be used for wireless communication, Cell phones, etc. [11] - [21].

The width of RMPA is given by Equation (9). Effective permittivity and fringing length delta *L* are shown in Equations (10) and (11) respectively.

$w=\frac{{c}_{0}}{2{f}_{r}}\sqrt{\frac{2}{{\epsilon}_{r}+1}}$ (9)

${\epsilon}_{reff}=\frac{{\epsilon}_{r}+1}{2}+\frac{{\epsilon}_{r}-1}{2}{\left[1+12\frac{h}{w}\right]}^{-\frac{1}{2}}$ (10)

$\Delta L=h\left(0.412\right)\frac{\left({\epsilon}_{reff}+0.3\right)\left(\frac{w}{h}+0.264\right)}{\left({\epsilon}_{reff}-0.258\right)\left(\frac{w}{h}+0.264\right)}$ (11)

Effective length and actual length are given in Equations (12) and (13) Substrate length and width are given in Equations (14) and (15) respectively.

${L}_{eff}=\frac{{c}_{0}}{2{f}_{r}\sqrt{{\epsilon}_{reff}}}$ (12)

$L={L}_{eff}-2\Delta L$ (13)

Substrate length = *L* + 6*h* (14)

Substrate width = *w *+ 6*h.*

*h* = height of the substrate, *w* = width of rectangular patch *L* = Length of RMPA;

*c*_{0} = Speed of electromagnetic wave [20].

Otherwise, a microstrip line will match the 50 ohms port impedance. The reflection coefficient indicates the amount of electromagnetic wave is reflected by an impedance mismatch in the transmission medium. It is a ratio of the amplitude of the reflected wave to the wave incident at the junction. The reflection coefficient is denoted by the symbol gamma. The magnitude of the reflection cefi-cientdoes not depend on the length of the line, only the load impedance and the impedance of the transmission line. The reflection coefficient, commonly denoted by the Greek letter gamma (Γ), can be calculated by using the formula
$\Gamma =\left({Z}_{l}-{Z}_{0}\right)/\left({Z}_{l}+{Z}_{0}\right)$. Where *Z _{l}* is complex load impedance and

The gain of an antenna is a very important parameter, gain should be very close to directivity so that the efficiency of the patch antenna increases.

Circular microstrip patch Antennas are designed using DNG or SNG Metamaterial cells, which is used to increase the performance of the system. These cells could substantially increase the gain and radiated power of an antenna. Furthermore, these antennas can improve efficiency-bandwidth performance. Various metamaterial-based antennas can be used for wireless communication [21] [22].

If at the edges impedance is very high then a quarter-wave transformer should be used for impedance matching. Otherwise, a microstrip line will match the 50 ohms port impedance. The graph of VSWR v/s frequency is presented in Figure 16. VSWR of CMPA is 1.0 at 26 GHz. VSWR (voltage standing wave ratio) is the measure of RF power is transmitted into a load.

The comparison of the parameters of RMPA with and without metamaterial is listed in Table 5. And the comparison of the parameter of Conventional edge fed CMPA and CMPA loaded with metamaterial is listed in Table 6. Both the antennas with metamaterial cells on the ground plane are designed and simulated using FEKO, It has been observed that the gain and bandwidth of patch antenna increases in comparison to RMPA without metamaterial.

RMPA loaded with and without metamaterial are simulated using FEKO, It has been found that the bandwidth of antenna loaded with metamaterial cells increases considerably in comparison to RMPA without cells. RMPA without cells returns loss and bandwidth are –54 dB & 1.23 GHz respectively. Whereas RMPA with metamaterial the values of Return loss and bandwidth are –60.7 dB & 1.62 GHz respectively.
