Abstract: A defected dodecagonal microstrip antenna fed through co-planar waveguide and operating in X-band frequency range(8-12 GHz) is proposed. Characteristic mode analysis is employed in examining the impact of defects on the resonant frequencies and return loss. Contrast in return loss for the suggested antenna with and without defects is dealt through Characteristic mode Analysis. Geometrical aspects of the proposed antenna are 40 mm × 35.5 mm × 0.1 mm. Subtrate material used in design is FR4 with a dielectric constant (εr ) = 4.4 and height (h) = 0.1m. CST Microwave Studio is used to simulate antenna parameters and Characteristic mode analysis. A return loss of -49.5dB at center frequency of 10.12GHz is observed with a fractional bandwidth of 47.6%. Gain of the antenna peaks at 4 dBi in the band of operation.
