Application: Transparent combination antenna system (Patent ID: US20240072424A1)

The patent filed by Meta Platforms Inc. discloses a transparent combination antenna that operates across different frequency spectrums, including sub 6 GHz and above 24 GHz. The antenna system includes multiple layers of transparent conductive material with different pitches, separated by a substrate. The system can be integrated into various devices such as lenses, smart glass, augmented reality glasses, touchscreens, smartwatches, and smartphones. The first layer of transparent conductive material functions within the 100 MHz-10 GHz range, while the second layer operates at 24 GHz or higher frequencies. The design allows for electromagnetic waves to penetrate through the layers, with reflections being additive in some cases.

The transparent combination antenna system described in the patent consists of layers of transparent conductive material with varying pitches, connected to antenna feeds. The substrate thickness is determined based on the wavelength of the radiated electromagnetic waves, with the second layer reflecting and potentially enhancing the waves emitted by the first layer. The system is designed to optimize antenna performance across different frequency ranges and can be implemented in a wide range of devices, offering transparent and efficient connectivity solutions for various applications.
