C.A E-mail:


In this paper, we present a low profile dual-microstripline-fed double 4-arrayed meander monopole antenna with a cross-type element back by separated four-segments mesh-type reflector. The cross-type element and separated four-segments mesh-type reflector leads to enhance radiation patterns and antenna gain characteristics. The measurement value of the proposed antenna show that it has dipole-like radiation pattern characteristics. The experimental peak gain of fabricated antenna is about 2.89 dBi, which presents relatively high gain characteristics for a low profile(small-size) one. This antenna can be applied mobile RFID(radio frequency identification) readers, small medical instruments, broadcasting and home-networking operations, and other low profile high-gain systems.
