Broadband Proximity Fed Modified E-Shaped Microstrip Antenna
Commonly used technique to realize broadband microstrip antenna is by cutting the slots at an appropriate position inside the patch. The slot introduces a mode near the fundamental mode of the patch and yields broadband response. The bandwidth of an E-shaped microstrip antenna is further increased by cutting the pair of rectangular slots on one of its edge. This increase in bandwidth is due to another mode introduced by additional pair of slots. In this paper, modal variations, for this modified E-shaped antenna are studied.
