Abstract
A low-profile microstrip planar monopole antenna with triple-band operation for WiMAX and WLAN applications is proposed in this paper. The antenna has a simple structure which consists of a rectangular ring patch, two inverted L-shaped strips extending from the rectangular ring patch, and a microstrip feed line. By adding two L-shaped strips on the rectangular ring patch, three resonant modes can be excited independently. The antenna has a simple structure and a compact size of 21 × 33 × 1.6 mm3. The measured -10 dB impedance bandwidth of the proposed antenna covers 2.39-2.51 GHz, 3.26-4.15 GHz, and 5.0-6.43 GHz, which can fully cover the 2.4/5.2/5.8 GHz WLAN bands and 3.5/5.5 GHz WiMAX bands. A prototype is fabricated, and then measured. The experimental and simulation results show good impedance bandwidth, radiation pattern and stable gain across the operating bands.
