Abstract

Simple schemes are presented for lowering the resonant frequency of the rectangular patch antenna without changing its size. In particular, by placing a perturbance below the patch it is shown that as much as 30 percent decrease from the resonant frequency of the unperturbed patch can be achieved. The specific configurations considered include a cavity-backed and an aperture-backed patch and for each case design curves are presented.
