With the loading of a pair of right-angle slots and a modified U-shaped slot in a rectangular microstrip patch, novel bandwidth enhancement of microstrip antennas is demonstrated. The required dimensions of the right-angle slots and modified U-shaped slot for bandwidth enhancement with good radiating characteristics have been determined experimentally in this study and the obtained antenna bandwidth can be as large as about 2.4 times that of a corresponding unslotted rectangular microstrip antenna. Details of the antenna design and experimental results are presented and discussed.
