    Abstract :

    Abstract: This research article proposes a novel double-layered stacked microstrip patch antenna design. The antennas are simulated in four types of flexible antennas with a different dielectric material. The materials used in stacking are low dielectric materials with εr= 2.1(Teflon) and εr= 2.7 (Poly-vinyl-chloride). It is a probe fed antenna for impedance matching with 50Ω coaxial cable. The results are compared on the basis of variation of different layers of dielectric constant and some of the antenna parameters for bandwidth analysis. The analysis for the performance of microstrip patch antenna has been evaluated in terms of directivity (dBi), gain (dB), return loss(dB), impedance bandwidth (GHz) and half power beam width (degrees). The proposed antenna operates for acceptable voltage standing wave ratio (VSWR) less than two. A wide band characteristic of stacked rectangular microstrip antenna is experimentally studied and designed in CST Microwave Studio 2014.
