Abstract
A dualband coplanar waveguide (CPW)-fed planar monopole antenna suitable for WLAN application is presented in this paper. The antenna resembling as a "G" shape and optimally designed by using the particle swarm optimization (PSO) algorithm can produce dual resonant modes and a much wider impedance bandwidth for the higher band. Prototypes of the obtained optimized antenna have been constructed and tested. The measured results explore good dualband operation with −10 dB impedance bandwidths of 9.7% and 62.8% at bands of 2.43 and 4.3 GHz, respectively, which cover the 2.4/5.2/5.8 GHz WLAN operating bands, and show good agreement with the numerical prediction. Also, good antenna performances such as radiation patterns and antenna gains over the operating bands have been observed.
