Planar Multi-Band T-Shaped Monopole Antenna with a Pair of Mirrored L-Shaped Strips for WLAN/WiMAX Operation
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research C, Vol. 21, 33-44, 2011
Abstract
A novel compact design of planar T-shaped monopole antenna with multi-band operation for WLAN/WiMAX system is proposed. By insetting a pair of mirrored L-shaped monopole strips, multi resonant modes close to 2.45/3.5/5.5 GHz band are excited to meet the specifications of WLAN/WiMAX system. And, the obtained impedance bandwidth across the operating bands can reach about 160/1100/2690 MHz for the 2.45/3.5/5.5 GHz bands, respectively. Only with the antenna size of 30×42×0.8 mm3, the proposed monopole antenna has the compact operation with more than 20% antenna size reduction. The measured peak gains and radiation efficiencies are about 3.2/3.5/5.4 dBi and 72/98/96% for the 2.45/3.5/5.5 GHz band, respectively, with nearly omni-directional pattern in the XY-plane.
