Abstract

A novel rectangular slot antenna with embedded self-similar strips is proposed for wireless local area network (WLAN) applications. The proposed antenna comprises a T-shaped monopole and inverted self-similar strips embedded in the rectangular slot etched on the ground plane. The measured results of the fabricated antenna show that the impedance bandwidths (VSWR<2) are 180 MHz from 2.36 to 2.54 GHz and 920 MHz from 5.05 to 5.97 GHz, which cover all the 2.4/5.2/5.8 GHz WLAN operating bands. And the radiation patterns are almost omni-directional in the azimuthal plane within the lower operating bands.
