Abstract:
A design and analysis of a novel proximity-fed printed slot antenna with 3.5/5.5 GHz dual band-notched characteristics are presented. To obtain an ultra-wideband (UWB) response, a circular patch with a rectangular conjunction arm is etched concentrically inside a ground plane aperture. The antenna is proximity-fed by a microstrip line with an open shunt stub on the other side of the substrate. The designed antenna satisfies a -10 dB return loss requirement in the frequency band from 2.7 to 17 GHz. In order to obtain dual band-notched properties at 3.5 and 5.5 GHz, an open ring slot is etched off the circular patch and a π-shaped slot is etched off the microstrip feeding line, respectively. A curve fitting formulation is obtained to describe the influences of the notched resonators on the corresponding notched frequencies. The proposed antenna is designed, simulated and fabricated. The measured data show a good agreement with the simulated results and the equivalent circuit results through the use of a modified Vector Fitting technique for a rational function approximation. The proposed antenna provides almost omnidirectional radiation patterns, relatively flat gain and high radiation efficiency over the entire UWB frequency excluding the two rejected bands.
