Slots are generally introduced in the antenna or antenna to improve the impedance matching, improve the bandwidth, and gain. Sometimes slots are introduced in the ground planes, or between antenna elements to reduce the mutual coupling between elements. The antenna being an important element in wireless communication technology, the design of the same with different requirements is important. This paper gives the survey of the slot antenna and antenna array constructed through waveguide and microstrip lines, to meet different antenna parameters as required in various wireless communication technology.
