An effective design of polygonal patch antennas with multifrequency or broad-band operation modes for wireless communications is presented in this paper. It is shown how polygonal patches with suitable features may be obtained after a proper perturbation of conventional rectangular geometries, which inherently present poor bandwidth performances. These perturbed irregular geometries may support multiple resonances and, thus, may present a broad-band or multifrequency operation mode, even employing conventional patch antennas with a single dielectric substrate. These polygonal patches are efficiently analyzed through a numerical code based on the method of moments, with entire domain basis functions that accurately describe the radiation mechanism. After the presentation of the analysis and design techniques, some antenna layouts for modern wireless communication systems will be proposed. Such antennas are designed for both universal mobile telecommunication system and wireless local area network portable equipment with real-life finite ground planes.

Abstract

An effective design of polygonal patch antennas with multifrequency or broad-band operation modes for wireless communications is presented in this paper. It is shown how polygonal patches with suitable features may be obtained after a proper perturbation of conventional rectangular geometries, which inherently present poor bandwidth performances. These perturbed irregular geometries may support multiple resonances and, thus, may present a broad-band or multifrequency operation mode, even employing conventional patch antennas with a single dielectric substrate. These polygonal patches are efficiently analyzed through a numerical code based on the method of moments, with entire domain basis functions that accurately describe the radiation mechanism. After the presentation of the analysis and design techniques, some antenna layouts for modern wireless communication systems will be proposed. Such antennas are designed for both universal mobile telecommunication system and wireless local area network portable equipment with real-life finite ground planes.
