Abstract

A novel printed top-loaded monopole antenna with a pair of sleeves on the ground plane for multiband wireless local area network (WLAN) applications is presented. This antenna is composed of a top-loaded monopole and two sleeves on a ground plane. Both the antenna and the ground plane are printed on the same side of an inexpensive FR4 substrate. This antenna has light weight and compact size of only 29×45×0.5 mm3. The operation bandwidth of this proposed antenna covers 2.4 GHz/5.2 GHz/5.8 GHz WLAN bands and 7.4 GHz~8.8 GHz for UWB application, which perfectly meet the requirement of multiband working. The measured and simulated results agree well with each other.
