Abstract

The rectangular planar monopole is examined. The paper investigates the effect of varying the width of the planar element for a fixed height. Parameters such as impedance bandwidth, current distribution, mode excitation and radiation pattern are examined. It is shown that the width has significant effects on the impedance bandwidth, mode excitation and radiation pattern.
