Abstract:
Some new parameters in Vivaldi Notch antennas are debated over in this paper. They can be availed for the bandwidth application amelioration. The aforementioned limiting factors comprise two parameters for the radial stub dislocation, one parameter for the stub opening angle, and one parameter for the stub's offset angle. The aforementioned parameters are rectified by means of the optimization algorithm to accomplish a better frequency application. The results obtained in this article will eventually be collated with those of the other similar antennas. The best achieved bandwidth in this article is 17.1 GHz.
