A Low Profile Multi-band U-shaped Aperture-coupled Microstrip Antenna with a Coil

In this article, an L-shaped probe-fed, U-slot patch antenna with a coil element is studied. The L-shaped probe feed is used to enhance the impedance matching, which is necessary because of a low radiation resistance in the usable band. The coil contri...
Microstrip patches are an attractive type of antenna because of their low cost, conformability and ease of manufacture. The aperture-coupled configuration 1 also provides the advantage of isolating spurious feed radiation by using a common ground plane. The primary barrier to the implementation of these antennas in many applications,...
