Abstract: Dual band antennas are an important area of research as global telecommunications companies compete to be the first to deploy fifth generation wireless communication systems. Dual band antennas enable communication in more than one operating band, which leads to reduced manufacturing costs due to the increased economies of scale that occur when one antenna is used in multiple applications. An aperture coupled microstrip antenna is commonly used in consumer electronic products since it is easy to fabricate and easy to integrate with electronic circuits. In this composition, an investigation has been made into converting an aperture coupled microstrip antenna into a dual band aperture coupled microstrip antenna by etching slots into the radiating patch. Using this approach, an antenna and linear array both operating at 29 GHz and 39 GHz have been designed, simulated, fabricated, and tested.
