U-slot microstrip patch antennas were originally developed for bandwidth broadening applications. Recently, it was found that the U-slot technique can also enable the patch antenna to perform other functions, including: dual-band and tri-band operations, as well as for circular polarization applications. The versatility of U-slot patch antennas will be discussed in this paper.
