Integration of Second-Order Bandstop Filter Into a Dual-Polarized 5G Millimeter-Wave Magneto-Electric Dipole Antenna

This communication proposes a dual-wideband differentially fed dual-polarized magnetoelectric (ME) dipole with second-order bandstop filtering for millimeter-wave (mm-Wave) applications at 24.25–29.5 GHz and 37–43.5 GHz. Without disturbing the complementary antenna operation, two resonator types (hairpin and coupled λ /4 open-/short-circuited stub resonators) are embedded into the wideband ME dipole to create two transmission poles and two zeros for sharp band-edge selectivity. This allows independent manipulation of the transmission poles and zeros and a compact ME dipole size. The filtering antenna has more than 31.6 dB of port-to-port isolation. Measured results show symmetrical E- and H-plane radiation patterns and cross-polarization levels lower than -25.1 dB. The measured gains of the single element and a 2×2 array are 8.3 and 12.5 dBi, respectively. In addition, the band rejection reaches 23.7 and 21.8 dB for single element and array, respectively.
