Abstract

A microstrip line-fed monopole antenna is proposed for super wideband (SWB) applications printed on an epoxy-resin-reinforced woven-glass material. The reported SWB antenna has been made of a rectangular partial ground plane with an L-type slit and a heart-shaped radiating patch. This antenna is connected precisely by a tapered feed line that provides SWB greater than ultra-wideband. The heart-shaped radiating patch and the partial ground plane containing a gap and an L-type slit on ground plane also play paramount roles to procure wide impedance bandwidth. It is determined from measurements that this antenna contains SWB characteristic [voltage standing wave ratio (VSWR) ≤2] spanning from 1.30 to 40 GHz (187.41%), with a bandwidth dimension ratio (BDR) of 5544.66 and a ratio bandwidth of 30.77:1. Simple construction, sharp surface current flow, much impedance bandwidth, nearly omnidirectional radiation patterns, stable peak gain (2.20-6.06 dBi), time domain performance, and considerable BDR (5544.66) make it a promising candidate for SWB applications.
