Abstract:
In this paper a square monopole antenna has been proposed which can be used for Ultra Wideband applications. Band-notch performance is introduced by an E-shaped slot on the patch. The dimensions are optimized to give not only the usual 3-10 GHz bandwidth with rejection in the 5-6 GHz band which is commonly used for WLAN, but also short received pulse duration when transmitted and received using a pair of these antennas. The demonstration of short received pulse-width is the primary novelty reported. The performance is verified by time domain measurements, in addition to the usual antenna characterization.
