This paper presented the study and design the curved strip dipole on Electromagnetic Band Gap (EBG) reflector plane that can be affected the performance of the proposed antenna for RFID application. The proposed antenna consists of a strip dipole that constructed of a metallic sheet and it was bended to be a half of annular with feed point at the center for yielding wider beam-width. Normally, a curved strip dipole antenna without the reflector provides low gain of 1.5 dB, due to its features of radiation patterns, both in azimuth and elevation planes.
