U-Slot Microstrip Patch Antenna for Wireless Application
The main objective of this paper is to simulate and design a single u-shaped microstrip patch antenna with operating frequency of 5.5GHz. This type of antenna has to be designed using a substrate having a low dielectric constant in order to achieve low return loss. The microstrip antenna consists of the rectangular patch on the top of the dielectric substrate and over which a u-shaped slot has been made to reduce the size of the antenna. The reduction in the size of the antenna results in improved gain and the return loss of the antenna. Therefore, the single u-shaped microstrip patch antenna has a broad bandwidth and can be used for wireless applications. The antenna has been simulated using HFSS (High frequency synthetic simulator) software, a 3D simulator which shows the accurate simulated result compared with other simulation software.
