A novel dual-band design of a finite ground CoPlanar Waveguide (CPW)-fed monopole antenna is presented for simultaneously satisfying Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) and Worldwide interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMAX) applications. The proposed antenna, comprising a rectangular planar patch element embedded with two L shaped slots and stair shape slot in the middle of the patch element. The simulated -10 dB bandwidth for return loss is from 3.34 to 4.056 GHz and 4.736 to 5.432 GHz, covering some of the WiMAX and WLAN bands.
