Short summary
In this paper we explain a novel method to increase the bandwidth of a top-loaded monopole antenna by using a shield made of dispersive magnetic material. We apply the Kramers-Kronig transforms to derive physically correct real and imaginary parts of the dispersive magnetic material. We aim at a compensation of the electric by a magnetic stored energy for a wide frequency range. Independent numerical solutions using the commercial field solver CST support the results of our investiagation.
