Bandwidth Enhanced E-Shaped Microstrip Antenna with Pair of Wide Slits

A single-layer single-patch wideband microstrip antenna could be developed, and impedance bandwidth greater than 30% can easily be achieved for a microstrip antenna with a probe feed, A broad-band design of a probe fed rectangular patch antenna with a pair of wide slits is studied, and the simulated, radiation characteristics are studied. The proposed design is with an air substrate of thickness about 8% of the wavelength of the center operating frequency, the proposed antenna have an impedance bandwidth about 31.32%, with respect to center frequency.
