Design of a Bandwidth-Enhanced Planar Printed Antenna with Two Dipoles

Progress In Electromagnetics Research M, Vol. 65, 111-119, 2018
Abstract
This paper presents a broadband planar printed antenna comprising two dipoles with different lengths and a transition structure of microstrip (MS) to coplanar stripline (CPS). These two dipoles are serially connected through CPS. By adding trapezoid and stepped patches, the dipole elements are modified for enhancing the impedance matching of the antenna. In addition, a tapered transition is adopted in the CPS to achieve improved impedance matching. The current work shows a good agreement between measured and simulated results. The measured bandwidth is from 2.43 to 8.04 GHz for VSWR≤2, corresponding to 107.2% fractional bandwidth. Measured peak gain≥4.0 dBi is obtained in the whole operating band.
