A new method to improve the bandwidth of the planar volcano-smoke antenna (PVSA) is proposed. The proposed antenna has an angular slot, resulting in a diamond-shaped inner island. Not only does our angular slot antenna give superior bandwidth performance compared to the conventional PVSA, the reduced number of parameters defining the angular slot compared to the curved slot also enables faster and easier optimization of the antenna.
