This paper first reports the design of the tunable graphene-based patch antenna at THz frequencies. After that a tunable graphene-based U slot loaded patch antenna has been designed to increase the bandwidth at THz frequencies. The simulated results for both the antennas are presented for different values of chemical potential.
