By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research C, Vol. 61, 139-147, 2016
Abstract
In this paper, a development of compact wideband antenna for L-Band Applications is presented. The proposed antenna is developed based on Modified Sierpinski Based Fractal geometry for the antenna patch with additional meandered structure in the antenna transmission line. The designed antenna is printed on a 10 x 10 cm of substrate with a relative permittivity of 4.3 and thickness of 1.6 mm. The antenna is fed by a 50 Ω microstrip line. The proposed antenna is characterized both in numerical and experimental analysis. The antenna characteristics are analyzed in terms of return loss, bandwidth, antenna gain, radiation pattern and radiation efficiency. From the experimental analysis, the fabricated antenna exhibits reasonable agreement to numerical design. The proposed antenna has an operating frequency from 0.94 GHz to 2.25 GHz with the lowest return loss of -36dB and maximum gain around 5.49 dBi, as well as radiation efficiency of 97%, approximately.
