Speech Title: Band-Notched Dual-polarized Electromagnetic Transparent Antennas for Cross-Band Scattering Suppression.

The multi-band aperture-shared antennas including the 5G massive MIMO antennas and the existing 2G/3G/4G antennas with one reflector and one radome are often used in current base stations to save costs. However, a lot of antennas working in different bands in a limited space will suffer serious cross-band scattering interference. Due to its larger size, the antennas operating in the lower-band usually work as a scattering source of the antennas operating in the higher-band, resulting in the distortion of the impedance matching and radiation pattern of the higher-band antenna. In this talk, band-notched method is proposed to realize electromagnetic transparent antennas with broad-band impedance matching and cross-band scattering suppressing for multi-band aperture-shared antennas. The operation mechanism of suppressing the cross-band scattering is first introduced by using a parasitic antenna array composed of two half-wavelength dipole antennas. It tells us that cross-band scattering suppression can be achieved by etching SSRs (split-slot resonators) on the entire radiating arms of a lower-band antenna to realize the notch band in higher band. Then several dual-band and tri-band aperture-shared antennas are proposed including electromagnetic transparent antennas operating in lower band and antennas operating in higher band. The electromagnetic transparent antennas are obtained by etching folded SSRs on the radiating arms of a crossed dipole antenna. The simulation and measurement results demonstrate that the electromagnetic transparent antennas designed by band-notched method can achieve good cross-band scattering suppression and radiation pattern restoration.
