Compact and Integrated Broadband Antennas: for wireless applications
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
As the wireless technology maturing, the wireless systems are evolving towards the development of new applications with broad band access and also the higher data rate. This necessity will give rise to the new WLAN standards as well as minimizing the cost, high QoS and security features of the wireless setup. It will also lift the trends towards the miniaturizination of hand-held devices, high data rates, higher bandwidth and robust performance on present and future WLAN standards, IEEE 802.11a/ 802.11b and 802.11g.
A Coplanar waveguide (CPW) fed compact and optimized monopole antenna printed on a substrate of Rogers TMM 4 is studied in this paper. The proposed antenna is fabricated and measured to verify the response for Wireless applications. It is broadband antenna which has dual band characristics and can operate simultaneously both at 2.4 GHz and 5.2 GHz frequency bands for Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) application.
Furthermore it is studied in detail that how the antenna performance and operation is affected by changing the parameters of antenna. The antenna has satisfactory return loss characteristics in desired range of frequency. The antenna has acceptable gain and directivity. The proposed antenna has a return loss value S11 < -10 dB. The impedance bandwidth of antenna is high and the radiation pattern of antenna is omnidirectinal which fulfill the WLAN requirements.
