Abstract:
A novel compact microstrip-fed planar monopole antenna with quad-notched bands is presented. The proposed antenna is based on one rectangular-stepped-patch. To achieve the higher resonance over the 12 GHz, one lateral L-shaped structure is embedded in the ground. By inserting four U-shaped slots in the radiation patch, quad band-notched properties in the WiMAX (3.3-3.6 GHz), INSAT(4.5-4.8 GHz), lower WLAN (5.15-5.35 GHz) and higher WLAN (5.725-5.825 GHz) are obtained. Experimental results indicate that the designed UWB antenna can obtain broadband matched impedance values, good frequency selectivity over the notched bands, relatively flat group delay and nearly omni-directional transmission characteristics across the UWB frequencies. More importantly, the quad-notched bands can be reconfigurable by shorting the corresponding U-shaped slots.
