A Novel Modified SSRR Metamaterial Antenna for 5GHz WLAN Band Applications


Objectives: In this paper design and analysis of novel metamaterial antenna for WLAN band applications is presented. Methods/Statistical Analysis: Proposed antenna operates at WLAN 802.11 band between 5 to 6 GHz range. The proposed antenna uses novel modified Square Split Ring Resonator (SSRR) shaped patch resulting in electrically smaller size and improved antenna performance in terms of gain and bandwidth. Findings: The overall size of antenna is 22.5 mm × 17.5 mm × 1 mm making it useful for small wireless devices. Simulated and measured results are presented and compared. Both the results are in good match with each other. Applications: Proposed antenna is suitable for its use in small and compact wireless devices such as USB dongles.
