By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research C, Vol. 11, 11-19, 2009
Abstract
This paper reports the design and development of rectangular microstrip antenna comprising a novel slot for enhancing the impedance bandwidth and gain. By incorporating a slot of optimum geometry at suitable location on the radiating patch, the antenna provides 78.08% (3.39 - 7.73 GHz) of impedance bandwidth and 3dB of gain without changing the nature of broadside radiation characteristics when compared to conventional rectangular microstrip antenna. The proposed antenna may find applications in mobile WiMax, IEEE802.11a, HIPERLAN/2, cordless phones, fixed wireless etc. Design concept of antennas is given, and experimental results are discussed.
