Abstract
The case of improving bandwidth of planar patch antennas is investigated. More specifically, the analysis deals with slot-loaded patch antennas. The use of a combined feeding apparatus capable of providing 'reactance-balance', and thereby improving bandwidth, is presented. The effectiveness of this simple technique in achieving nearly 35% fractional bandwidth is demonstrated using experimental measurements.
