Abstract: Two laptop antennas are presented using two different designs based on metamaterials. The first design consists of planar monopole loaded with an electric-LC resonator (ELC). This novel topology allows for the realization of a multi-band antenna by using the ELC to add multiple resonances. This structure is analyzed using full-wave simulations. A circuit model is also developed to gain further understanding. This technique is then used to design a Wi-Fi antenna. The second design uses a modified double-tuned matching network to create a single-band match for a planar monopole antenna. The matching network is implemented using a complementary-split-ring-resonator (CSRR). The design is once again analyzed using full-wave simulations and a circuit model is also developed. This technique is then applied to design a WiMax antenna. Both the Wi-Fi and WiMax antennas are fabricated and show good agreement between the simulated and measured results.
