Compact Microstrip Patch Antenna Using Metamaterials To Perform As Narrow Band LTE Receiver Antenna

Tushar P. Dave, Nita T. Dave, Jagdish M. Rathod


This paper presents the review of various stages of development for improving the parameters of microstrip patch antenna. The main focus of paper is on metamaterials as this material is used to extend the capability of microstrip patch antenna and ultimately antenna can be improved for its utilization in different applications which were not earlier due to limitations of simple microstrip patch antenna. This paper also presented design of compact patch antenna using metamaterials with dimension of 25mm×20mm to produce narrow band resonance so as to work as narrow band receiver and clearly reject all other adjacent signals for better output. The proposed antenna of size achieves two bands of LTE that is band 22 and nearly band 21.
