Abstract

A miniaturized microstrip-fed antenna composed of a broadside coupled split ring resonator and an excitation arc-shaped monopole is presented. Numerical and experimental results are presented for an antenna configuration of 1/25 wavelength in diameter (ka~0.126). The antenna size including the ground plane is 60×38.5 mm2 and it is operating at 200 MHz. Its resonant frequency can be tuned over a good range of frequency without changing the antenna size, which can increase its usable bandwidth using reconfigurable antenna techniques.
