Compact Microstrip Antenna for WLAN and H-LAN Communication
A single layer, single feed compact rectangular antenna is proposed. Resonant frequency has been reduced drastically by cutting unequal rectangular slots at the edge of the patch & a circle in the middle. The width of the rectangular slots is different to improve the gain bandwidth performance of the antenna. The antenna size has been reduced by 41.8% when compared to a conventional rectangular microstrip patch antenna with a maximum of 24.9 MHz bandwidth at - 16.3 dB return loss at 3.41 GHz. The characteristics of the designed structure are investigated by using MoM based electromagnetic solver, IE3D. There is reasonable agreement these simulated data and measured value.
