2010 (English)In: Microwave and optical technology letters (Print), ISSN 0895-2477, E-ISSN 1098-2760, Vol. 52, no 11, 2581-2585 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
In this article a miniaturized planar antenna is presented for broadband applications. Antenna miniaturization is achieved by modifying the ground plane that creates a different current path thus increasing the effective dimension of the antenna. In addition, dual chopping, slitting, and radiator position offsetting provide wideband behavior and relatively good impedance matching. The low profile antenna with its wide bandwidth, linear phase response and quasi-omnidirectional radiation pattern is attractive for the existing and future communication devices of small size. Simulated and measured results for the proposed antenna are presented and analyzed.
