A Novel Miniaturized Dual Band Slotted Monopole Antenna for WLAN and WiMAX Applications
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research C, Vol. 133, 167-179, 2023
Abstract
This study presents a novel design for a dual-band antenna that is compact, efficient, and suitable for both WLAN and WiMAX applications. The antenna features a circular patch with a Hilbert fractal structure and a coplanar waveguide feed line, resulting in a compact size of 24x34x1.6 mm3. By utilizing a Hilbert fractal slot and defected ground structure, the antenna can operate in two frequency bands, 2.39-2.47 GHz and 3-6.32 GHz, providing coverage for the desired WiMAX and WLAN bands. The experimental results demonstrate acceptable gains and high efficiency at the resonant frequencies, along with omnidirectional radiation patterns in the H-plane and bidirectional patterns in the E-plane. Notably, this design offers a nearly 50% reduction in size compared to comparable antennas and higher gain, representing a significant contribution to the field of dual-band antenna design.
