Design and characterization of a diamond-shaped monopole antenna

Abstract

The resonant frequency of a diamond shaped monopole antennas is analysed by using a finite difference time domain method. The diamond shaped monopole antennas was fabricated and tested experimentally on RT Duroid material and then the results were directly compared with simple monopole antennas., Tthe work shows that the diamond shaped monopole antennas has smaller dimensions, higher bandwidth and gain at millimeteric wave frequency . Experimentally measured diamond shaped monopole antennas has good agreement with simulated results.
