Title

A Multiband Reconfigurable CPW-Fed Slot Antenna

Abstract

A coplanar waveguide (CPW)-fed slot antenna loaded with electronically-controlled sub-wavelength slots is introduced. This reconfigurable antenna operates at several distinct bands with appreciable bandwidth and reasonable gain. Since the antenna is tuned electronically to operate at one band at a time, it does not suffer from noise and interference issue as much as multiband and wideband antennas.
