Abstract

In this paper, a directional slot antenna with parasitic patch and windowed superstrate is presented. Through this composition, high-gain property can easily be obtained by this proposed antenna. The proposed antenna has a measured impedance bandwidth of 2.41-2.49 GHz for S11<-10 dB, which can cover the 2.4-2.484 GHz frequency band of WLAN application. Simulated and measured results show that high-gain features up to 11.50 dBi across the corresponding impedance band are achieved. Details of the proposed slot antenna configurations and design procedures are given; the experimental results are also given and discussed.
