Design and Analysis of Metamaterial Based Rectangular Patch Antenna for WIMAX Application
In this paper, the authors explain about metamaterial based rectangular patch antenna is designed for WIMAX application which is centered at 3.6 GHz and the antenna characteristics namely return loss, VSWR, radiation pattern are analyzed. Here, the antenna is designed using rectangular patch antenna with left handed metamaterial. The return loss, VSWR of the designed antenna are -14.69, 1.45 respectively. The size of the antenna is 100x90x2mm3 which is much compact and meeting the requirement of WIMAX application. Hence, this antenna could be used for WIMAX application.
