Wideband Patch Antenna Design for Wi-MAX and WLAN Application with Modified Ground Plane
The microstrip patch antenna design for new emerging technologies is an area of extensive research these days because of their low profile and ease of fabrication. Antenna design presented in this paper is well suited for WiMAX and WLAN application. The antenna is providing -10dB bandwidth of 4.14GHz from frequency 2.5GHz to 6.6GHz which is coming under the standards of these two technologies and good results have been achieved in the return loss and radiation pattern of the antenna. The design is made of FR4 substrate with modified ground plane structure and by inserting rectangular slits between feed lines and radiating patch was implemented to change the effective length of the antenna.
