Multi-frequency printed dipoles based on antipodal printed dipoles loaded with metamaterial particles are presented. Split ring resonators (SRRs) are used as metamaterial particles in order to obtain fully printed and planar antennas. First, a simplified model of these antennas is developed. This model is based on a printed dipole loaded with the equivalent circuit of the SRRs. This model shows that the working frequencies are very close to the self-resonant frequencies of the dipole and the SRRs. Moreover, a dual-frequency printed dipole is designed, manufactured and measured. This dipole works simultaneously at 1.32 GHz and 2.82 GHz. Finally, the previous idea is extended to increase the bandwidth of the dual-band dipoles and develop multi-frequency printed dipoles (printed dipoles which work simultaneously at three or more frequencies). This is made by using SRRs with different dimensions.
