In the contexte of my reaserch about antenna conceptions, I'm trying to simulate using CST Microwave a cavity antenna based on metamaterial structure and a slot antenna as a GND,However I got as a results:

  • Total efficiency near to 130%.
  • The impedance decreased from 50 ohm to 28 ohm.

Are those results correct [note that I used a cavity] ? or not?

Antenna efficiency over 130% would mean a perpetual motion machine, so probably not.
