Abstract

Recent years have witnessed a great deal of interest from both scientific and academic communities in the field of flexible electronic systems. Most flexible electronic systems require the integration of flexible antennas operating in specific frequency bands to provide wireless connectivity which is highly demanded by today’s network oriented society. On the other hand, High Impedance Surfaces have become very popular in the design of contemporary antenna and micro-wave devices due to their wide range of applications derived from their unique electromagnetic properties which significantly enhance the performance of antennas and RF systems. Accordingly, the integration of HIS structures within flexible wireless systems is very beneficial in this growing field of research. In this paper, a systematic review of flexible HIS structures reported in the literature is conducted, which provides the reader with a thorough description and a complete list of state of the art designs intended for flexible wireless systems.
