Single Slot Rectangular Microstrip Antenna for Wireless Applications
Microstrip antennas are popular and are getting increased attention due to their advantages. Depending upon the application, microstrip antennas having different geometrical shapes are used. Nowadays, researchers are interested in the design and development of compact microstrip radiating elements. In literature, the authors have experimentally demonstrated the development of compact microstrip antenna. Many techniques have also been studied in order to overcome the narrow impedance bandwidth of microstrip patch antenna. Among the various techniques, there have been the popular ones such as use of increased substrate thickness, the use of a low dielectric constant substrate, the use of air filled dielectric medium, use of various impedance matching and feeding techniques, the use of multiple resonators, and the use of slot antenna geometry and so on.
