We present microstrip patch antenna incorporated with left-handed metamaterial at 2.684 GHz. The proposed antenna uses metamaterial structure in the height of 1.6mm from the ground plane. This paper shows the comparison between the microstrip patch antenna using alone and loaded with metamaterial structure with the enhancement in antenna gain and reduction in return loss at the same resonant frequency. By use of this combination it has been seen that there is an step up of return loss of around 6 dB. These structures are simulated using IE3d Electromagnetic simulator of Zeland software incorporation.
