Microstrip Antenna, Proximity Feed, Quad Band, And VSWR


This paper presents the effect of slot on rectangular microstrip patch antenna using proximity feed technique. The antenna uses two-layer substrate with the microstrip-line on the lower layer and the patch antenna on upper layer such as the feed line terminates in an open end underneath the patch. In this study a slot is etched on a rectangular patch such that the antenna is resonating for four frequency bands and 4.85 times more when compared to the antenna without a slot. The other antenna parameters such as radiation pattern, return loss, VSWR and HPBW are presented and discussed. The proposed antenna finds the application in modern wireless communication systems.
