Abstract

The design of a novel conformal antenna that demonstrates dual-band operation and nearly omni-directional radiation patterns at the frequencies of operation is introduced in this paper. The antenna is a combination of two monopole antennas; a broadband fat monopole and a folded linear monopole. The antenna is designed on conformal Liquid Crystal Polymer (LCP) material and a Styrofoam box is used to support the structure. The antenna can be used for WLAN applications since the bands of operation overlap with the designated frequency ranges for IEEE 802.lia and IEEE 802.11b protocols. The conformal antenna can be used for applications where the available surface for the front end is limited or when a solid compact three dimensional sensor is needed. The effect of the three dimensional geometry characteristics on the radiation pattern orientation is briefly discussed.
