Design Simulation and Fabrication of a Dual Band Frequency Reconfigurable Monopole Antenna for Wi-Fi and WiMAX Applications

Authors: Prasanna Paga, H. C. Nagaraj, T. S. Rukmini

Nowadays, wireless systems require compact multi band antennas that can dynamically change some of its fundamental parameters such as frequency band, polarization and radiation pattern. The novelty of the proposed work lies in using two conducting strips that are perpendicular to each other. The longer strip resonates at 2.4 GHz and the shorter strip resonates at 3.5 GHz. The length and width of the Ground plane is made equal to length of the main arm and length of the side arm respectively. The results are obtained by simulating the antenna structure using simulation tool Ansoft HFSS v15.0. The Simulated antenna Gains were 6.2364 dBi and 7.1758 dBi for frequencies of 2.4 GHz and 3.5 GHz respectively. The antenna dimensions are 50 × 25 × 1.6 mm3 on a 1.6 mm thick FR-4 substrate.
