We report a new planar antenna design in the shape of a diamond. The performance of the antenna design is initially obtained through simulation, then fabricated, and its performance evaluated through experiment. Experimental characterization of the diamond-shaped monopole antenna shows good agreement with simulation. In comparison with a simple monopole antenna, our diamond-shaped monopole antenna features smaller geometric footprint and displays a higher bandwidth at millimeteric wave frequencies.
