In this paper, a novel triple-band circular-ring monopole antenna with a half-circular ring and ground slot for wireless local area network/Worldwide Interoperability of Microwave Access (WLAN/WiMAX) applications is proposed. The proposed antenna consists of one circular ring, a half-circular ring and a rectangular slot in the ground plane. Based on the concept, a prototype of the proposed triple-band antenna was designed, fabricated and tested. The numerical and experiment results demonstrated that the proposed antenna satisfied the -10 dB impedance bandwidth requirement while simultaneously covering the WLAN and WiMAX bands. Furthermore, this paper presents and discusses the 2D radiation patterns and 2D gains according to the results of the experiment.
Key words: Antenna, WLAN/WiMAX, Triple-Band Operation, Circular Ring Antenna
