A new patch antenna system, which has both a photonic bandgap (PBG) substrate and a PBG cover, is proposed in the present paper. The impedance, radiation pattern, and directivity of such an antenna are studied by the finite-different time-domain method. The results show that the directivity of the PBG antenna is significantly improved. The dependence of the directivity on the frequency and other parameters is also studied.
