A dual-band textile antenna loaded with an artificial magnetic conductor (AMC) plane is proposed for WLAN applications. Its dual-band operation is enabled by a rectangular patch in the 2.4 GHz band and a patch-etched slot dipole in the 5 GHz band. Since the AMC approaches a perfect magnetic conductor (PMC) in the 5GHz band, the slot dipole can be located close to the ground. The proposed antenna is fully fabricated using textiles except for a feeding connector used for testing purposes and a via. Simulations and experiments agree well and validate that this low profile antenna operates with a good reflection coefficient and a high front-to-back ratio (FBR) within the desired bands.
