Abstract

A planar monopole loaded with composite right/left-handed transmission line (CRLH-TL) for broadband LTE mobile phone is presented. The CRLH-TL with a propagation constant of zero is added to widen the input impedance bandwidth of the antenna. The proposed antenna covers the LTE700/2500/GSM850/900/1800/1900/UMTS2100 and WLAN2400 bands. Impedance bandwidths of VSWR<2.5 (S11<-7 dB) ranging from 675 to 1010 MHz and 1690 to 2550 MHz are obtained. The size of the monopole is 60×16×1mm3 which is smaller than most of the LTE antennas. Detailed design considerations of the monopole are described. A prototype is fabricated and tested. Both simulated and experimental results are discussed.
