The effects of a two-dimensional (2D) electromagnetic bandgap substrate on the performance of a microstrip patch antenna are investigated. The microstrip patch antenna is placed on a defect in the electromagnetic bandgap substrate that localizes the energy under the antenna. Finite-difference time-domain calculations are employed to determine the effects of the substrate. The excitation frequency of the antenna near the resonance frequency of the defect mode can be used to control the coupling between antennas that are placed in an array
