Abstract

In This Paper, A Gain Enhanced Broadband L-Probe Inverted E-Shaped Microstrip Patch Antenna That Covers The Third Generation (3G) Band Is Presented. The Design Employed Two Dielectric Layers Arrangement Where A Thick Air-Filled Substrate Was Sandwiched Between A Top-Loaded Dielectric Substrate Or Superstrate With Inverting Radiating Patch And A Ground Plane. The Broadband Characteristic Was Provided By The Thick Air-Filled Substrate And The L-Shaped Probe Structure, While The Gain Enhancement Was Due To The Superstrate Structure. An Antenna With A Thickness Of 12.7 Mm Was Simulated Using Sonnet Em Simulator. Measurement Result Showed Satisfactory Performance With A Gain Of About 10 Db And With Achievable Bandwidth Of > 28% At 10-Db Return Loss And >19% At 14-Db Return Loss.
