Electromagnetic band gap (EBG) structures that are engineered to achieve desired transmission and
reflection characteristics in specific frequency bands, have long been actively studied in the microwave regime for a wide
variety of applications. They have also been used as superstrates for directivity enhancement of antennas as well as
substrates for height reduction of conformal antennas.In this study we develop some guidelines for systematically
designing Enhanced Bandwidth antenna systems, comprising of a microstrip patch antenna (MPA) covered by a planar
EBG substrate. At the beginning, the investigations of EBG were mainly on wave interactions of these structures at
optical frequencies and hence PBG emerged with the name of photonic band-gap structures.EBG is due to the interplay
between macroscopic and microscopic resonances of a periodic structure.The major Area of interest EBG structure gain
with its enomourous advantage it offers like Mutual Coupling, Surface Wave Suppression at microwave frequencies. In
my study I Concentrate on Mashroom EBG antenna which is a part of planer structure of microstrip patch array and
using multiple layers of substrate we can achieve great Bandwidth enhancement.
