One of the major requirements for modern wireless communications is very high data transmission, so antennas with simple geometry, wide operation bandwidth and stable high gain features are in increasing demand. In this thesis, three novel pseudo magneto-electric (ME) dipole antennas operating in 5G Frequency Range 1 (FR1) sub-6GHz and Frequency Range 2 (FR2) millimeter-wave (mmW) band are introduced and analyzed. Comparing with conventional ME dipole antennas, which always require a vertical quarter-wave cavity to generate the magnetic dipole resonance, the pseudo-ME dipole designs proposed in this thesis do not rely on the cavity to provide the complementary magnetic dipole mode, therefore, they have extremely simple geometry. Meanwhile, it achieved wide bandwidth (50.30%) and high gain (average 8.74 dBi) the in-band gain variation is only ± 1dB. Based on the novel cavity-less Pseudo-ME dipole antenna geometry, a wide axial ratio bandwidth (54.1%) circularly polarized pseudo-ME dipole antenna is also designed to overcome the polarization misalignment problem in multipath-rich wireless environments, this antenna has two pairs of orthogonal electric dipoles and magnetic dipoles to achieve the wide axial ratio bandwidth performance. Finally, an aperture-coupled printed pseudo-ME dipole antenna is designed for operating in millimeter-wave band, it has 32.3% of impedance bandwidth and stable high gain 7.4 ± 0.8 dBi. Especially, there is none typical via-hole formed cavity in the geometry, so the fabrication of the mmW band antenna becomes simpler.
