Abstract

A novel gap coupled dual band multiple ring antenna with a defected ground structure (DGS) has been successfully implemented. A different technique is used in this communication where both gap coupling and defected ground are applied to obtain better results for wireless applications. The designed antenna operates in two different frequency bands. The antenna shows a wideband in C-band and also resonates in the X-band. The main parameters like return loss, impedance bandwidth, radiation pattern and gain are presented and discussed. The gain is increased and the side lobe level is considerably reduced to a good extent. Designed antenna is tested and the results show that the simulation and experimental results are in good agreement with each other.
