Abstract

A Microstrip patch antenna using planar metamaterial unit cell is designed, simulated and analyzed. The metamaterial unit cell is consisting of an interdigital capacitor and a complementary split-ring resonator (CSRR) slot. The antenna is tuned to work efficiently in the frequency range from 3 GHz – 5GHz depending on the geometric specifications of antenna and interdigital finger length. Proposed antenna provides good return loss behavior. The VSWR obtained in this band is very much near to 1. It covers many applications including mobile communication. This Antenna is compared with the conventional patch antenna, which shows the significant miniaturization as compared to conventional patch antenna.
