A novel compact wideband antenna with T-shaped strips inside square ring is proposed. By stacking a pair of T-shaped strip one above another, the antenna covers the WIMAX (3.3-3.8 and 5.25-5.85 GHz), WLAN (2.41-2.54, 5.15-5.35, and 5.72-5.85 GHz), and lower band of future 5G communications (3.6-6 GHz). The antenna is fabricated on 17 × 33 × 1.6 mm3 FR-4 substrate. UWB operation is achieved using a rectangular shaped slot in the ground plane. The designed antenna has been fabricated and measured. Simulation results and measured results are in good agreement.
