Microwave radiation effects of carbon nanotube (CNT) arrays are investigated experimentally by placing them on the surface of microstrip patch antennas. The radiation intensities of different patch antenna configurations with and without CNT arrays are measured and compared. The experimental results indicate that the addition of CNT arrays significantly enhances the electromagnetic radiation of the antenna.
