Broadband μ-shaped microstrip antenna

A new broadband μ-shape microstrip antenna is proposed. The μ-shaped patch is realized by cutting two rectangular slots on the opposite edges of the rectangular microstrip antenna. The two slots reduce the resonance frequencies of orthogonal TM10 and higher order TM11 modes of the patch and along with its TM01 mode, yields bandwidth of nearly 500 MHz (> 45… CONTINUE READING
