Abstract

In this study, the design and prototyping of a compact planar antenna is presented for a wideband application. The designed transmission line fed antenna constitutes with dual elliptical patches radiator with two circular parasitic elements and a partly ground plane printed on both sides of a 1.6-mm thick epoxy resin reinforced with a woven glass dielectric material. The structure of the antenna is planar, and the design is easily fabricated. In comparison to the other substrate materials, the proposed antenna on epoxy resin woven glass material can achieve a wider bandwidth and is less expensive. Experimental findings reveal that the designed antenna is able to gain an impedance bandwidth of 7.78 GHz (reflection coefficient ≥ -10dB) from 5.42 GHz to 13.2 GHz (2.42: 1, 83.56%). Moreover, the antenna has meaningful gain and demonstrates radiation patterns that are stable within the operating band. The details of the proposed antenna are described and discussed in detail.
