Abstract

A wideband unidirectional antenna composed of a magneto-electric dipole with Γ-shaped feed is designed. Simulated and measured results are presented. It achieves an impedance bandwidth of 84% for VSWR ≤ 2 ranging from 2.05GHz to 5.05GHz, stable peak gain of around 5 dBi, unidirectional radiation patterns and low cross polarization over the whole operating band. It is sufficient for accommodating recent wireless communication services such as 3G, WiFi, WiMax, Bluetooth, WLAN and Zigbee, etc.
