Abstract:
In this paper, a small modified circle-like slot antenna with modified radiating patch, for UWB applications is proposed. The proposed antenna consists of a modified radiating patch with novel notch and a semi-circle-like with a slope which provides a wide usable fractional bandwidth of more than 135% (3.07-16.26 GHz). By optimizing the notched radiating patch, the total bandwidth of the antenna is greatly improved. The designed antenna has a small size of 27.5×27.5 mm2.
