Abstract: A microstrip patch antenna is low profile antenna mounted over a high impedance electromagnetic bandgap (EBG) substrate is proposed. In this paper, Microstrip patch antenna with rectangular EBG structure is proposed and studied. The proposed antenna has compact structure with a total size of 29.44×38.036mm2 . The designed antenna resonates at Particular Single frequency with improved return loss, VSWR and gain. The resonant frequency of the antenna 2.4GHz without and with EBG and improved return loss of -17.61dB and -18.30dB. With rectangular EBG the antenna gives improved gain of 2.09 dB. The Proposed antenna is simulated by using Simulation software ie.(IE3D) and simulated results are in good with practical antenna characteristics.
Keywords: EBG, Microstrip patch antenna, Return loss, Gain.
