Abstract

A compact paw-shaped multiband monopole antenna for Wireless local area network(WLAN) and worldwide interoperability for microwave access(WiMAX) applications is presented. The proposed antenna is composed of a paw-shaped monopole element and a rectangular ground plane with simple configuration. This antenna can easily be fed by using a 50ohm probe feed with SMA connector. By adjusting a few parameters of the three arms, the resonant frequencies can be easily tuned. The proposed antenna was analyzed and optimized to cover three bandwidths from 2.32 to 2.84, 3.39 to 4.34 and 5.11 to 5.91GHz that for WLAN and WiMAX applications respectively, with the return loss of better than 10 dB. The performances of the antenna are demonstrated along with measured and simulated results. Moreover, simulated and experimental results with different parameters of the antenna are given.
