Broad Band Slotted Stacked Microstrip Antenna for Wireless Applications
This paper presents broad band slotted MSA for wireless application. By using stacked configuration, cutting slot the bandwidth equal to 19.70% is achieved. The antenna is fed by coaxial probe feeding technique and designed using stacking configuration. The designed antenna operates in the frequency range of 2.713 to 3.304 GHz. The antenna is designed using air as a dielectric substrate between the ground plane and patch and simulated on the Zeland IE3D software. Microstrip antennas are being frequently used in Wireless application due to its light weight, low profile, low cost and ease of integration with microwave circuit. However standard rectangular microstrip antenna has the drawback of narrow bandwidth and low gain.
