The microstrip patch antenna is one of the most preferred antennas due to its low cost, light-weight, simple implementation process and conformability. The microstrip patch antennas radiate primarily because of the fringing fields between the patch edge and the ground plane. However, the general microstrip antennas suffer from narrow bandwidth, which limits their application in modern communication systems like MIMO systems, etc. In recent years, the demand for the design of tri-band or multiband antennas is increased, as these antennas can integrate more than one communication standards in a single compact system.
