Abstract

In this paper a novel rose leaf shape microstrip antenna with capacitively coupled rectangular fed is presented. Various shapes of capacitive coupled fed are compared and optimized by successive iterations of a computer-aided analysis. The Ansoft HFSS is employed for analysis at the frequency band of 4.3 GHz-8.3 GHz. The antenna is fabricated and measurement results show a very good agreement with the simulation results. The proposed antenna is able to achieve an impedance bandwidth about 69%. Effects of varying the parameters on the performance of the antenna have also been studied. The proposed antenna can be used in wireless ultra-wideband (UWB) communication.
