Abstract

In this letter, a new type of broadband magnetoelectric dipole antenna is investigated and implemented for millimeter-wave applications, particularly for new fifth-generation (5G) applications. The proposed antenna has broadband operating bandwidth and high front-back radiation level owing to its complementary antenna configuration. The antenna also features a single-layer structure to bring about ease of fabrication and low profile. The antenna covers an operating bandwidth of 50.4% (47.5-79.5 GHz), which thoroughly covers the new unlicensed band in the new 5G standard. The antenna yields advantages of broadband, low back-radiation level, and low fabrication cost.
