Abstract
In this paper, a new design of miniature, multiband
slot antenna is presented. The slot structure of the proposed
antenna is based on the 3rd iteration of the Moore space-filling
geometry, which is a closed variant of the conventional Hilbert
space-filling curve. The slot structure is constructed on the
ground plane side of a dielectric substrate. The slot antenna is
fed by a 50 Ω microstrip line, printed on the reverse side of the
substrate. The proposed antenna possesses a miniature size with
a slot side length of about half the guided wavelength.
Furthermore, the antenna performance curves show that it offers
a multiband behaviour with enhanced bandwidths, as compared
with those offered by antenna structures based on other space-filling
geometries. Expressions have been presented to correlate
antenna slot parameters with the first resonant frequency, and
among the subsequent resonant frequencies as well.
