Abstract

In this paper, a compact wideband planar monopole antenna suitable for slim mobile handsets applications is presented. The proposed antenna operates over LTE700/GSM800/900 (0.742 GHz-1.36 GHz), GPS L1/GSM1800/1900/UMTS/IMT2100/Wi-Fi/LTE2300/2500 (1.475 GHz-2.7 GHz), and WiMAX (3.4 GHz-3.72 GHz) based on reflection coefficient better than -6 dB. It consists of coupling strip, shorted radiating strip, and parasitic meandered lines. The wider impedance bandwidth is achieved by placing the meandered line as parasitic element on the back side of the coupling and shorted radiating elements. With this configuration, the antenna gives extremely wide impedance bandwidth which covers all the required frequency bands of the smart mobile phones. To investigate the proposed antenna, S-parameters, surface current distributions, and radiation performances are studied. To check the robustness of the proposed antenna, investigation is also carried out in the vicinity of the mobile environment. Further, specific absorption rate (SAR) is calculated on the human head and found to be below 0.535 W/kg. The simulated and measured results are found in close agreement.
