Abstract

A compact planar monopole ultra-wideband (UWB) antenna with dual band-notched characteristics is proposed in order to minimize the interference between UWB systems and existing world interoperability for microwave access and wireless local area network operating bands. The antenna has a microstrip line-fed circular ring radiator with one etched partial concentric annular slot and one semi-circular slot. Two rectangular slots are also etched to connect the slots to the outer and inner periphery of the circular ring radiator. The desired dual band-notched UWB operation can be obtained by choosing the size and location of the etched slots. Experimental results show that with a compact size of 24 mm × 26 mm the proposed antenna achieves a wide impedance bandwidth from 2.79 to more than 11 GHz with two frequency notched bands of 3.3-3.8 and 5.1-6 GHz for WiMAX and WLAN, respectively. Moreover, the antenna exhibits stable radiation characteristics and a good time domain behavior which makes it suitable for being used in the future UWB applications.
