Enhancement of Gain of Printed T Monopole Antenna Using Uniplanar EBG for ISM Band (2.4GHz) Applications
A novel and simple printed T-monopole antenna with EBG Structure is proposed. The antenna comprises T-shaped monopoles of different sizes, which generate resonant modes for the desired 2.4GHz frequency range. The proposed antenna has a low profile and can easily be fed by using a 50 microstrip line. Prototypes of the proposed antenna designed for WLAN operations in the 2.4GHz bands have been constructed and tested. Good radiation characteristics of the proposed antenna have been obtained.
