In this paper, a dual-band microstrip patch array antenna for both the Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) 4G Long-Term Evolution (LTE) and the Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) systems is developed. Design simulation and optimization processes are carried out with the aid of the Advanced Design System (ADS) electromagnetic simula-tor that uses the full–wave Method of Moment (MoM) numerical technique [1]. Rectangular microstrip patch antenna constructed from Multi-Walled Carbon Nanotubes (MWCNT) ink with electrical conductivity of 2.2 × 104 S/m and relative permittivity of 5-j1 is used as the conductor patch [2]. The patch is deposited on Rogers substrate RT-Durid 5880 single substrate with (εr = 2.2) and thickness of 62 mil. U-shape slot is used to provide the dual-band. The pro-posed antenna operates at 3.5 GHz for LTE and 5 GHz for WLAN. The proposed antenna parameters are compared with published result of copper patch [3,4] for the same application. Great enhancement in antenna size, matching, and frequency band width are achieved for the proposed antenna at the expense of gain and antenna efficiency compared with copper one. The proposed MWCNT dielectric antenna size is 18.4 mm × 27 mm compared with size of 27 mm × 37 mm for copper one respectively. The gain is better than 7dBi with antenna efficiency of 87.29% at 3.5GHz for cop-per patch antenna and is better than 1.692 dBi with antenna efficiency of 27.05% at 3.5GHz for MWCNT respectively.
