Abstract: A capacitively loaded planar inverted-F antenna (PIFA) is proposed and studied. It is found that the capacitive load reduces the resonance length of the PIFA from λ/4 to less than λ/8. A design with a bandwidth of 178MHz centered at 1.8GHz is provided to demonstrate that compact antennas for mobile telephone handsets can be constructed using this approach. The finite difference time domain method is used in the study and experimental verification is also provided.
