A square planar metal-plate monopole antenna fed by using a novel trident-shaped feeding strip is presented. With the use of the proposed feeding strip, the square planar monopole antenna studied shows a very wide impedance bandwidth of about 10 GHz (about 1.4-11.4 GHz, bandwidth ratio about 1:8.3), which is larger than three times the bandwidth obtained using a simple feeding strip (about 1.5-3.3 GHz, bandwidth ratio about 1:2.3). In addition, the proposed feeding strip can be integrated with the square planar monopole, that is, the feeding strip and the square planar monopole together can be easily fabricated using a single metal plate, making the proposed antenna easy to construct at a low cost. Details of the experimental and simulation results for the proposed planar monopole antenna are presented and analyzed.
