Abstract:
A novel dual-wideband printed monopole antenna is proposed for wireless local area network (WLAN) and worldwide interoperability for microwave access (WiMAX) applications. The proposed antenna consists of a T-shaped monopole on top and dual combined G-shaped slots located symmetrically on the ground plane to achieve a dual-wideband performance. Prototype of the proposed antenna has been constructed and tested. The measured 10 dB bandwidths for return loss are 1.76 GHz from 2.13 to 3.89 GHz and 0.92 GHz from 5.03 to 5.95 GHz, covering all the 2.4/5.2/5.8 GHz WLAN and 2.5/3.5/5.5 GHz WiMAX bands. And this antenna also has omni-directional patterns over the lower operating range.
