Abstract
Nowadays the mobile personal communication systems and wireless networks are commonly used. Experience has revealed that the antennas suitable for these applications should have small size and operate in assigned different frequency bands. For this purpose, circularly polarized (CP) multi-band square microstrip antenna with three N-slots and a pair of truncated corners is proposed, designed and simulated. To reduce the losses and improve the antenna efficiency in addition to the bandwidth, an efficient electromagnetic band gap (EBG) structure is introduced. The proposed antenna has produced a higher efficiency, an improved operational bandwidth, and a higher gain relative to the conventional microstrip antenna.
