A novel broadband design of a CoPlanar Waveguide (CPW) fed T-shape slot antenna is proposed and experimentally studied. The size of the proposed antenna is reduced by over 26% compared to the reported wide slot antenna. The obtained results show that the impedance bandwidth, determined by -10dB return loss, of the proposed slot antenna can be as large as 5690MHz or about 121% centered at about 4.695GHz. The design considerations for achieving broadband operation of the proposed slot antenna are described and experimental results are presented.
