Abstract

Microstrip patch antennas are becoming essential component in many emerging medical applications. The increase use of these antennas in such devices is due to a number of attractive properties of these antennas. In this paper, we present a novel design of microstrip patch antenna which can be used in mobile devices for microwave, wireless and eHealth applications. The proposed design of the antenna is based on rectangular structured slots in order to operate at multiple frequency bands. The slots are designed on the rectangular patch and fed by a microstrip feeder line. The combination of the proposed design and quarter wave transformer feeding technique allow the antenna to operate at multiple frequencies in the range of 3 - 12 GHz which is used for most of the wireless applications. It is shown that five different operating frequency bands have VSWR = 2 which is an acceptable range for short to medium range wireless communication. The operating bands of frequency are: 4.7 GHz, 6.7 GHz, 8.9 GHz, 9.8 GHz and 10.9 GHz with VSWR = 2. It is also observed that the gain of proposed design is higher than the conventional patch antenna which makes it more attractive choice for many applications. The proposed design ensures secure and efficient transmission as well as better transmission of input power, i.e. low values of Return Loss.
