The metamaterial-based zero-phase-shift-line (ZPSL) structures have exhibited unique dispersion characteristic which enables the flowing current along it featuring very small phase lag. This chapter has outlined the ZSPL configurations, the dispersion characteristic analysis approaches based on electromagnetic simulation and circuit model, and the design guidelines. A number of ZPSL loop antenna designs have been exemplified for different applications. The relevant discussions are believed to benefit the antenna researchers, engineers, and students to further understand of the ZPSL structure and development new ZPSL-based antennas.
