This paper introduces a new model of high gain sectoral electromagnetic band-gap (EBG) antenna for WiMAX applications. After a short description of such antenna, a novel model of planar EBG structure based on Babinet principle is proposed. A prototype of sectoral EBG antenna, operating in WiMAX bandwidth and using the multi-source technique, is realized. Simulation and experimental results are finally reported and discussed.
