Abstract

A compact half-slot microstrip antenna is proposed in this paper. The antenna consists of microstrip line-fed half slot, and an open-circuited stub is connected to the microstrip feed line to adjust the matching at the operated frequency band. A half slot is used for miniaturization, as well as due to concentrating the field at only half slot; consequently, it decreases the resonance frequency and improves the antenna radiation characteristics. The antenna radiates at 24 GHz with measured fractional impedance bandwidth of 9%. The antenna gain at the resonant frequency is 5.2 dBi. The proposed antenna shows about 60% length reduction. Therefore, the proposed half slot antenna could be used for energy harvesting applications, at 24 GHz ISM band, due to its compact size with improved gain value. The proposed antenna was designed using ANSYS high-frequency structure simulator (HFSS). The simulated and measured results show good agreement.
