A new compact interdigital capacitor loaded open slot antenna and its lumped model are presented in this letter. Equivalent model analysis shows that the introduction of the interdigital structure increases the capacitive element of the slot and thus reduces the operating frequency of the slot antenna. And the antenna operating frequency as well as its size can be easily reduced by simply increasing the capacitance of the interdigital capacitor and the characteristic impedance of the slot. Experimental results of the exemplary antenna agree well with those of the full-wave simulation, proving that the proposed open slot antenna structure is viable in antenna design.
