A metamaterial-based compact one-unit-cell antenna realised on a microstrip line is presented. The size of the proposed antenna is only 6times13.5timesmm (or 0.05times0.13times0) at 2.7 GHz owing to zeroth-order resonance. The design procedures with closed-form solutions are provided using transmission line theory considering radiation loss. The measured antenna bandwidth is 15 MHz and total gain is 1.22 dBi.
