This thesis investigated novel textile electromagnetic structures fabricated by a commercial computerized knitting machine. Different electronics such as elliptical waveguides, slotted waveguide antennas (SWA) and frequency selective surfaces (FSS) working at microwave band had been realized with fully textile materials. Knitted polyester was used as a dielectric and silver embedded yarn was knitted to create conducting patterns. Most of the textile electromagnetic structures in this thesis were the first time proposed to the public. Their performances were studied in both simulation and measurement.
