Abstract:
This paper presents the development of an Ultra Wide Band (UWB) monopole antenna with dual band notch characteristics. Modified crown-square shaped fractal slots in the ground-plane are implemented to enhance the impedance bandwidth to around 58% as compared to conventional square monopole antenna without slots. Impedance bandwidth of the proposed antenna is approximately 114% with Voltage standing wave ratio (VSWR)<2. In addition to this, two omega-shaped (Ω) slots have been incorporated in the radiating patch to render band-notch characteristics centered at 5.5-GHz band assigned to IEEE802.11a and HIPERLAN/2 as well as X-band for satellite communication centered at 7.5-GHz band. Measured antenna gain is stable over the entire UWB region except at the notch bands. Radiation pattern of the antenna show that the proposed antenna exhibits nearly monopole like E plane radiation patterns and omni-directional H plane radiation patterns throughout the band. A fabricated prototype is developed with close agreement between simulated and measured results.
