A new wideband magneto-electric dipole antenna using coplanar waveguide (CPW) structure is proposed in this paper. The proposed antenna consists of a pair of horizontal triangular patches and two vertically oriented L-shaped strips. By introducing triangular patches working as an electric dipole, the antenna can operate in a wide band. With the use of L-shaped strips equivalent to a magnetic dipole, the antenna is low in profile. A microstrip feed line is located between the two L-shaped strips

By carefully adjusting the gap between the feed line and the strips, the impedance bandwidth can be improved largely. A parametric study is performed to provide information for designing and optimizing such an antenna. A prototype is fabricated and measured. The simulated and measured results show that the impedance bandwidth for SWR less than 2 of the proposed antenna is 58.7% (1.95-3.57 GHz). Due to the complementary nature of the antenna, the proposed antenna has a unidirectional radiation pattern with low-polarization and low back-lobe radiation over the whole operating band. Furthermore, the gain of the antenna is stable across the entire bandwidth.
