Abstract

In this project it is investigated whether the utilisation of commercial off the shelf carbon nanotube fibre in antenna designs created as part of metamaterial research, can be used to produce electrically small antennas We find that basic improvements to metamaterial antenna designs enable low broadcast frequencies utilising standard bulk metals. However, the increased surface area of the carbon nanotube fibre enables further reductions in frequency. From these results we find that carbon nanotube fibre metamaterial antennas may provide attractive alternatives to existing electrically-small antennas.
