Performance Enhancement of a Novel ANN Optimized Mushroom Shaped Microstrip Antenna for Wireless Applications
In this paper, the authors propose the design of mushroom shaped patch antenna for lower spectrum of microwave frequencies. The patch has radius of 10mm placed on the FR4 substrate. Slots have been introduced in order to improve the performance of the antenna. To ease the calculation of dimensions MATLAB coding is used. In order to get the optimized radius Artificial Neural Networks (ANNs) is used. The proposed antenna resonates at 2.4GHz, 3.1GHz, 3.6GHz, 5.6GHz and 6GHz. Hence its applications fall on Industrial Scientific and Medical (ISM, 2.4-2.483GHz) band, fixed mobile Wi-MAX (2-6GHz) applications. Since the antenna is designed with miniaturized size it can also be preferred for bio-telemetry applications.
