In this study, a one-element coplanar-waveguide (CPW) slot antenna and a two-element series aperiodic CPW slot antenna array are optimized by Taguchi's method, in conjunction with a full-wave simulator to analyze the antennas, to achieve the desired goals. As a comparison, particle swarm optimization (PSO) is also used to design the two antennas. Optimization results show that the desired frequency responses of the antenna are successfully achieved by the two approaches. The optimization results from the Taguchi's method significantly outperformed the PSO method in these two slot-antenna configurations.
