Electromagnetic Band-Gap (EBG) media, working right above the band-gap can shape the radiation of a simple emitter embedded in their periodic structures. In this region of the dispersion diagram, degenerate lattice modes can be selectively excited with a proper positioning of the primary sources. This paper presents the design of an antenna that exploits such physical mechanism, which is potentially attractive at mm-waves since it relies on dielectric structures. An antenna fed by two sources and based on a square lattice of dielectric cylinders is presented. For the first time, the dependences of radiation properties on some geometrical parameters are investigated before moving to a final realistic design.
