Abstract:
A low-profile microstrip planar monopole antenna with triple-band operation for WiMAX and WLAN applications is proposed. The antenna has a simple structure which consists of a rectangular radiation patch with an L-shaped slot and an inverted L-shaped stub extending from the ground plane. By etching an L-shaped slot on the rectangular radiation patch, the antenna can excite two resonant modes. The third resonant mode is introduced by extending an inverted L-shaped stub from the ground plane. The designed antenna has a small overall size of 17*30 mm2. A prototype is designed, fabricated, and then measured. The experimental and simulation results show good impedance bandwidth, radiation pattern and stable 9gain across the operating bands.
