Hexagonal Carpet Antenna for WLAN/ WiMAX & Bluetooth Applications
In this paper, carpet of hexagon structure is investigated for wide band applications. The proposed antenna is made by repetitions of hexagon shape. Modified line feed is used for designing the antenna to achieve wide bandwidth ranging from 2.325Ghz to 4.613Ghz with a bandwidth 65.96%.In the present work size reduction has been achieved. It offers gain of 3.65dBi, directivity of 4.13dBi and antenna efficiency of 89.59% at 2.96Ghz resonant frequency. This antenna is suitable for WLAN, WiMAX and Bluetooth applications. The proposed antenna is simulated by IE3D Zeland simulation software based on method of moments.
