A Novel Planar Inverted F Antenna for LTE & WLAN Applications with Metamaterial Superstate
In this paper, a novel Planar Inverted F Antenna (PIFA) for Long Term Evolution (LTE) wireless system application is presented. The antenna is proposed on Roger Duroid 5880 dielectric substrate. The total area occupied by the antenna is 44x20mm and can be easily integrated in mobile handsets. The impedance bandwidth of the antenna ranges from 2.33-2.92GHz covering the LTE and WLAN bands. Metamaterial super-state layer is also used and placed near the antenna. Its effects are analyzed and discussed. The antenna has low profile structure and hence can be easily mounted on mobile handsets. The antenna is simulated and optimized using Ansoft HFSS.
