A Compact Triple-Band Fork-Shaped Antenna for WLAN/WiMAX Applications
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research Letters, Vol. 40, 61-69, 2013
Abstract
A novel triple-frequency fork-shaped antenna for WLAN/WiMAX applications is proposed and investigated in this paper. The presented antenna is simply composed of three radiating elements viz. Stub1, Stub2, Stub3. By adjusting the lengths of the three stubs, three desired resonant frequencies can be achieved and adjusted independently. Experimental results show that the antenna impedance bandwidths for S11 ≤ -10 dB are 2.4-2.65 GHz, 3. 3.3-4.05 GHz, and 5-5.98 GHz, covering the 2.4/5.2/5.8 GHz WLAN bands and 2.5/3.5/5.5 GHz WiMAX bands. Furthermore, nearly omni-directional radiation patterns over the operating bands have been obtained.
