COMPACT PLANAR UWB ANTENNA WITH BAND NOTCH CHARACTERISTICS FOR WLAN AND DSRC

By R. Azim and M. T. Islam

Full Article PDF (466 KB)

Abstract:
In this paper, a compact ultra-wideband microstrip-fed annular ring antenna with band notch characteristics for wireless local area network (WLAN) and dedicated short-range communication (DSRC) is proposed. The proposed antenna comprises an annular ring patch and a partial ground plane with a rectangular slot. The notched frequency band is achieved by etching a partial annular slot in the lower portion of the ring radiator. The centre frequency and bandwidth of the notched band can be controlled by adjusting the width and position of the annular slot. Measured results show that the proposed antenna achieved an impedance bandwidth of 3-10.6 GHz with a notched frequency band cantered at 5.5 GHz. Compared to the recently reported band-notched UWB antennas, the proposed antenna has a simple configuration to realize the band notch characteristics to mitigate the possible interference between UWB and existing WLAN & DSRC systems. Furthermore, a symmetric radiation patterns, satisfactory gain and good time domain behaviour, except at the notched frequency band, makes the proposed antenna a suitable candidate for practical UWB applications.
