The line opening slotted antenna based on microstrip line feed [8] can obtain the wider impedance bandwidth and better bidirectional radiation performance.
In the paper, it presents a 1/4 wavelength stepped opening slot antenna through adopting the resonator and the narrow slotted loading method is also introduced; it can increase the impedance bandwidth of the opening slot antenna and improve the directional radiation ability accordingly.
In Figure 2(a), the structure and parameters of the L-shaped opening slotted antenna proposed in the paper are shown, which is printed on the dielectric substrate and the substrate material is FR-4; its dielectric constant is 4.2, and the thickness of the dielectric substrate is 0.7 mm.
