Abstract

In this article, a circular-slot dual band antenna fed by a coplanar waveguide (CPW) for WiMAX/C band applications is presented. The antenna mainly encompasses a ground with a wide circular slot in the centre, a rectangular feeding strip and two pairs of asymmetric planar inverted L (APIL) strips connecting with the slotted ground. By introducing the two pairs of APIL's, two resonant frequencies, 3.70 for WiMAX, and 6.75 GHz for C band applications are agitated. The simulated results show that the proposed antenna has two good impedance bandwidths (VSWR less than 2) of and 1250MHz which make it easily cover the required bandwidths for WiMAX (3.4-3.6GHz) and 4-8 GHz C band applications. Moreover, the obtained radiation patterns demonstrate that the proposed antenna has significantly directional and Omni directional patterns in both E-plane and H-plane.
