Dual Band Aperture Coupled Stacked Microstrip Patch Antenna for WLAN

2014 International Journal of Advanced Research in Electrical, Electronics and Instrumentation Engineering  
This paper presents a dual band aperture coupled stacked microstrip antenna with the introduction of an air gap 3 mm between the ground plane and the upper layer substrate for WLAN applications. The nominal antenna has -10 dB return loss bandwidth of 134.8 MHz and 384.9 MHz at lower band resonant frequency of 3.905 GHz and upper band resonant frequency of 5.36 GHz respectively. The gain of the antenna is greater than 5 dB, also the directivity is greater than 5 dBi and VSWR value is less than 2
