Nikita Kothari, Aman Saraf, Manoj Singh Rawat "Design of Compact Coaxial-Fed Meander Slot Multiband Antenna for Wireless Applications", International Journal of Engineering Trends and Technology (IJETT), V58(1),20-24 April 2018. ISSN:2231-5381. published by seventh sense research group

In this research work, a novel design of compact coaxial fed meander slot microstrip antenna for the wireless application has been proposed. The designed antenna consists of a rectangular patch with dimension 25 x 23 and placed over substrate which has four meander shaped slots to achieve Quad band operation with frequency bands 2.1 GHz, 2.4 GHz, 3.4 GHz and 4.7 GHz with S11?10dB and respective VSWR?2. Stimulated results demonstrate the good radiation patterns for proposed antenna with a narrow impedance bandwidth at lower band with good performance in terms of isolation and suggest that the proposed antenna is suitable for the wireless application including Fixed Mobile, WLAN, WiMAX and other applications.
