Abstract

In this paper, a novel multiple slot microstrip patch antenna with enhanced bandwidth is presented. The design adopts contemporary techniques namely; probe feeding, inverted patch structure and multiple slotted patch. The composite effect of integrating these techniques and by introducing the novel multiple shaped patch, offer a low profile, wide bandwidth, high gain and compact antenna element. The proposed patch has a compact dimension of 0.707 λ0 × 0.3 54 λ0 (where λ0 is the guided wavelength of the center operation frequency). With the proposed concept, an antenna prototype is simulated and analyzed. The proposed antenna achieves a fractional bandwidth of 27.15% (1.91 to 2.51 GHz) at 10 dB return loss while maintaining a maximum gain of 10.5 dBi. The design is suitable for array applications especially for base station.
