Abstract

An experimental investigation was conducted on printed wide-slot antennas fed by microstrip lines for wide-band applications. Results show that the impedance matching of this kind of antenna is greatly affected by the feed-slot combination and feed gap width, with the slot shape being a main contributor of the radiation characteristics. By properly choosing the suitable slot shapes, selecting similar feed shapes and tuning their dimensions, two designs with significantly enhanced impedance bandwidths and improved radiation patterns are obtained.
