AbstractDesign of a printed microstrip patch antenna operating at multiple frequency bands is presented in this paper. The antenna has a very simple structure combining a microstrip patch, two rings and a slot. The antenna covers GPS (1.575 GHz), 4G/LTE/CDMA (2.1 GHz), and Wi-Fi (3.6/5.3 GHz) frequency bands with good impedance matching (2:1 VSWR) and radiation pattern performance. It has an omni-directional radiation pattern at most of the desired frequencies of operation. The antenna has good efficiency ranging from 60% to 98% and exhibits high peak gain values of 4.1 dBi, 5.7 dBi, 5.1 dBi and 7.9 dBi at 1.575 GHz, 2.1 GHz, 3.68 GHz and 5.37 GHz, respectively.

Generation of orbital angular momentum (OAM) radio beams with phased patch arrayQiang Bai; Tennant, Alan; Allen, Ben; Rehman, Masood Ur; University of Sheffield; University of Bedfordshire (IEEE, 2013-11)This paper describes the design of an 8-element circular phased patch array antenna which can generate radio beams carrying orbital angular momentum at 10 GHz. Realistic antenna design issues are discussed, including mutual coupling and the array performance when operating in different OAM states.
Experimental circular phased array for generating OAM radio beamsBai, Qiang; Tennant, Alan; Allen, Ben; University of Bedfordshire; University of Sheffield (IEEE, 2014-09)A circular phased array antenna that can generate orbital angular momentum (OAM) radio beams in the 10 GHz band is described. The antenna consists of eight inset-fed patch elements and a microstrip corporate feeding network. A full-wave electromagnetic simulator is used to aid the antenna design and theoretical simulations are confirmed by measurements
A low profile penta-band antenna for portable devicesShameem, Usama; Ur-Rehman, Masood; Qaraqe, Khalid; Abbasi, Qammer Hussain; University of Bedfordshire; Texas A & M University, Qatar (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc., 2016-03-17)Recent years have seen a rapid growth of portable wireless communication systems. Limited form factor and operation at multiple frequencies of these devices require novel solutions of efficient embedded antennas. It has increased the demand of microstrip patch antennas due to their inherent properties of being low profile, simple design, small size and ease of fabrication and integration. Miniaturisation requirements have seen rise of multiband patch antennas. This paper presents the design and analysis of a novel multiband microstrip patch antenna. The antenna consists of a rectangular slot with two E-shaped stubs on both of its sides. An inverted T-shaped stub is present on the upper side of the slot while an I-shaped stub is there on the bottom side. A T-shaped feeding line feeds the antenna. The slot, stubs and feed collectively produce five frequency bands centred at 1.5 GHz, 2.2 GHz, 3.1 GHz, 4.2 GHz and 5.3 GHz for LTE/4G/5G, WiBro/WiMax, Satcomm and WLAN applications. The antenna offers small size, good impedance bandwidth and high gain at all operating frequencies.
