Abstract: In this paper, dualband parasitic square microstrip patch antenna loaded with metamaterial has been reported. Metamaterials exhibit qualitatively new electromagnetic response functions that cannot be found in nature. The inclusion of these structures allows simultaneous operation over several frequencies. Stacking of the patches increases the overall performance of the antenna. The antenna is designed to function in two bands. The antenna has two working frequency bands and its centre frequencies are 1.7 GHz and 1.76 GHz. It is applicable for several wireless applications. Design results are obtained by high frequency structure simulator (HFSS), which is used for simulating microwave passive components.

Keywords: dualband parasitic metamaterials; left-handed; split ring resonator; SRR; microstrip patches; antenna design; simulation; microwave passive components; wireless applications.
