Microstrip Antenna

A type of antenna formed by depositing a thin metallic patch on a dielectric substrate, which is then mounted on a larger ground plane. The patch, which is typically in a geometric shape like a square, rectangle, or circle, radiates in response to the radio frequency current applied. One of the main advantages of this antenna type is its flat, lightweight, and compact design, which can be easily integrated into the surfaces of electronic devices or aircraft. Despite their small size, microstrip antennas can achieve efficient radiation and can be designed to operate at various frequencies, making them a popular choice in wireless communication systems.
