Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to present a new dual-band printed monopole antenna with a partial ground with two notched bands based on electromagnetic band gap (EBG) structures. A new type of EBG antenna with radiation patterns and antenna gains over the operating bands has been developed.

Design/methodology/approach

The proposed antenna consists of a pair of EBG structures using a transmission line model. The proposed antenna is designed on an FR4 substrate with a thickness of 1 mm and permittivity (er) = 4.3.

Findings

The measured results show good dual-band operations with −10 dB impedance bandwidths of 9.1 and 36.2 per cent centered at 2.45 and 6.364 GHz, respectively, which covers the wireless local area network (WLAN) operating bands.

Originality/value

A new type of EBG antenna with radiation patterns and antenna gains over the operating bands has been developed.
