Empirical results of an electrically small printed monopole antenna are described with a fractional bandwidth of 185% (115 MHz to 2.90 GHz) for return-loss better than 10 dB, peak gain and radiation efficiency at 1.45 GHz of 2.35 dBi and 78.8%, respectively. The antenna geometry can be approximated to a back-to-back triangular shaped patch structure that is excited through a common feed-line with ... [++]
Empirical results of an electrically small printed monopole antenna are described with a fractional bandwidth of 185% (115 MHz to 2.90 GHz) for return-loss better than 10 dB, peak gain and radiation efficiency at 1.45 GHz of 2.35 dBi and 78.8%, respectively. The antenna geometry can be approximated to a back-to-back triangular shaped patch structure that is excited through a common feed-line with a meander-line T-shape divider. The truncated ground-plane includes a central stub located underneath the feed-line. The impedance bandwidth of the antenna is enhanced with the inclusion of meander-line slots in the patch and four double split-ring resonators on the underside of the radiating patches. The antenna radiates approximately omni-directionally to provide coverage over a large part of very high frequency, the whole of ultrahigh frequency, the whole of L-band and some parts of S-band. The antenna has dimensions of 48.32 × 43.72 × 0.8 mm 3 , which is corresponding to the electrical size of 0.235 λ 0 × 0.211 λ 0 × 0.003 λ 0 , where λ 0 is the free-space wavelength at 1.45 GHz. The proposed low-profile low-cost antenna is suitable for application in wideband wireless communications systems. [--]
