Ultra Wideband Microstrip Patch Antenna with Reduced Return Loss
In this paper, we have introduced a simple microstrip patch antenna in the Ultra Wideband (UWB) frequency range of 3-10.26 GHZ with a reduced return loss as low as -26 dB. The proposed antenna is simulated using ADS (Advanced Design System), an electronic design automation software for RF, microwave, and high speed digital applications and hardware fabrication of the same has been carried out. The simulation results shows the return loss of - 30 dB which is in accordance with the return loss of fabricated antenna. The results of hardware fabrication and software simulation are compared and the other simulation results such as power radiation, effective angle, directivity, gain are also found out in this paper.
