Abstract: To improve the antenna characteristics in terms of bandwidth, gain and its radiation characteristics without providing any phase reflections, Artificial Magnetic Conductor (AMC) are used in antenna designing. This paper initially designed AMC structure for 2.4GHz frequency. The proposed AMC structure consists of three L shaped and inverted L shaped slots and provides zero degrees phase reflection at 2.4GHz resonant frequency. This proposed AMC structure is incorporated on conventional micro strip square patch antenna and results are simulated in High Frequency Structure Simulator (HFSS) software. The Proposed AMC incorporated patch antenna, return loss is improved from -16.16dB to -31.75dB, VSWR is from 1.42 to 1.05, the band width is increased from 16.5 MHz to 348.1 MHz This design resonates at a frequency of 2.4GHz and applicable to Wi-Fi applications.
