Small Size and Multiband Monopole F-shaped Antenna Configuration for Wireless Communications Applications

Conference: Progress In Electromagnetics Research Symposium Proceedings (PIERS Proceedings 2009)


The performance and analysis of a small size and multiband monopole F-antenna (MFA) are introduced. The proposed antenna design, analysis and characterization are performed using the Method of Moments (MoM) technique. The radiation characteristics, VSWR, reflection coefficient, input impedance, gain, and polarization of the proposed antenna are described and simulated using 4NEC2 software package. The proposed antenna operates at higher than frequency band (3 or 4 bands) depending on dimensions of the antenna.
