Printed monopole antenna with extremely wide bandwidth on liquid crystal polymer substrates
Paper in proceedings, 2011

This letter presents a printed monopole antenna with extremely wide bandwidth on a liquid crystal polymer (LCP) substrate. It consists of a hollowed elliptical monopole, two trapeziform ground planes and a tapered co-planar waveguide (CPW) feeder. By using standard processing technology, this monopole antenna is fabricated on the direct metalized LCP film substrate. The fabricated antenna can achieve an extremely wide impedance bandwidth, a nearly omnidirectional radiation pattern and a compact size, which verifies that LCP materials are very suitable as substrates for commercial wireless applications.
