Design & Parametric Study of Rectangular Slot Microstrip Patch Antenna for UWB Applications

The accelerating growth of Ultra-Wide Band (UWB) technology calls for efficient communication devices. Antennas, as an important part of every communication system, are required to offer characteristics such as compact size, light weight, easy fabrication process, Omni-directional radiation properties, and wide bandwidth to be worthy of being used in UWB systems. A microstrip fed antenna which consists of a rectangular patch with rectangular shaped slot incorporated into patch is presented for ultra-wide band application with enhanced bandwidth. The proposed antenna achieves an impedance bandwidth of 8.9GHz (2.3-11.2GHz) with VSWR
