Abstract

The design of a half U-slot loaded square microstrip antenna is proposed for the dual band response offering circular polarization in the second band. On a substrate with thickness of 0.06λg, the half U-slot tunes the spacing in between TM10, TM01 and TM11 resonant modes of the square patch to achieve dual band characteristics. In the two bands, measured impedance bandwidths of 6.49% and 17.36% with a broadside gain > 7.0 dBi are achieved. Against the equivalent square patch, the proposed dual band antenna offers 8% reduction in the patch area. With the achieved antenna characteristics, the proposed configurations satisfy the requirements of GSM 750/GPS L5 band applications.
