The Bluetooth technology provides short range of wireless connections between electronic devices like computers, mobile phones and many others thereby exchanging voice, data and video. The rapid increase in communication standards has led to great demand for antennas with low real estate, low profile and size, low cost of fabrication and ease of integration with feeding network. Microstrip patch antennas are widely used because they are of light weight, compact, easy to integrate and cost effective. However, the serious problem of patch antennas is their narrow bandwidth due to surface wave losses and large size of patch for better performance.
