Abstract

In this paper, we propose a novel I-shaped folded slot antenna that miniaturizes the overall size (40% reduction) of a conventional folded slot antenna designed at 1.4 GHz. The antenna is designed and simulated using HFSS on a flexible thin substrate so it can be used for conformal applications. It is also reconfigurable and two p-i-n diodes are used to redirect and redistribute the current resulting in a frequency reconfigurable antenna. When the diodes are ON, the I -shaped folded slot antenna behaves as conventional folded slot antenna at 3 GHz. However, when the diodes are OFF, the current is redirected on the entire I -shaped slot and it is resonating at a lower frequency 1.4 GHz.
