For applying micro/nano technologies and Micro-Electro-Mechanical System (MEMS) technologies in the Radio Frequency (RF) field to manufacture miniature microstrip antennas. A novel MEMS dual-band patch antenna designed using slot-loaded and short-circuited size-reduction techniques is presented in this paper. By controlling the short-plane width, the two resonant frequencies, f10 and f30, can be significantly reduced and the frequency ratio (f30/f10) is tunable in the range 1.7~2.3. The Haar-Wavelet-Based multiresolution time domain (H-MRTD) with compactly supported scaling function for a full three-dimensional (3-D) wave to Yee's staggered cell is used for modeling and analyzing the antenna for the first time. Associated with practical model, an uniaxial perfectly matched layer (UPML) absorbing boundary conditions was developed, In addition , extending the mathematical formulae to an inhomogenous media. Numerical simulation results are compared with those using the conventional 3-D finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) method and measured. It has been demonstrated that, with this technique, space discretization with only a few cells per wavelength gives accurate results, leading to a reduction of both memory requirement and computation time.
