Frequency Reconfigurable Conformal Antennas for Wireless Networks
Frequency Reconfigurable antennas have received significant attention for their applications in communications, electronic surveillance and countermeasures, by adapting their properties to achieve selectivity in frequency, bandwidth, polarization and gain. This paper presents the design of reconfigurable conformal antenna for Wireless LAN networks. The proposed antenna is suitable for wireless networks (WLAN) for an operating frequency at 2.4 GHz. The antenna covers the 2.4 -2.464 GHz WLAN band with a return loss of -21 dB. In this paper, the operations at two different frequency bands are presented. The switching between the different frequency bands is achieved by using diode switch.
