Abstract

This paper proposes a novel small asymmetric coplanar strip (ACS) fed tri-band monopole antenna for WLAN and WiMAX applications. To tune and create multiple resonant frequencies, the exciting strip of monopole antenna is connected to two different arms which are a J-shaped directed toward the asymmetric ground plane and an open stub. The proposed monopole antenna with a total size of 14.6 x17.5 mm2 is fabricated and tested. The measured results indicate that the antenna has impedance bandwidths for 10-dB return loss reach about 500 MHz (2.01-2.52 GHz), 230 MHz (3.48-3.71 GHz) and 1.2GHz (5.59-6.72 GHz) which cover widely the 2.4/5.8 GHz WLAN bands and the 3.5GHz WiMAX band. The simulated radiation patterns of the proposed antenna at the three resonant frequencies have a dipole-like radiation pattern in both E-and H-Planes. The compact size, the simple structure and good radiation performances of the proposed antenna makes it well-suited forthe intended applications.
