Abstract

A slot antenna with a notched band at 5.5 GHz is proposed for UWB applications. The basic UWB antenna comprises of a rectangular radiating patch and a ground plane with a tapered shape slot and printed on 1.6 mm-thick FR4 dielectric substrate. To realise a notch band, two symmetrical slits are etched on the slot of the ground plane. Experimental results show that the proposed antenna exhibits wideband performance from 3.08 to more than 11 GHz with a notched frequency band centred at 5.5 GHz which can effectively mitigate the interference between the WLAN and UWB systems. It is also confirmed from the measurements that the insertion of slits does not affect the antenna performance, except at the notched frequency band.
