The author presents a coplanar capacitively fed shorted patch antenna for easy fabrication and providing a very wide impedance bandwidth. In this design, a feeding strip is located on the same plane as that of the radiating patch and used to excite the antenna by electromagnetic coupling. Experimental results reveal that the impedance bandwidth of the proposed antenna depends not only on the length and location of the feeding strip but also on the width of the radiating patch. For the optimal result obtained in the design, the 10 dB return-loss impedance bandwidth is as large as 78%. The radiation characteristics of the operating frequencies within the obtained wide bandwidth are also studied and presented.
