Abstract:
In this paper, a new ultra-wideband (UWB) disc antenna compatible with cognitive radio is presented. The proposed antenna is developed to operate from 0.77 to 11.23 GHz. It consists of a circular disc radiator with a rectangular slot on the patch and the implementation of the bevel technique on the ground plane. A prototype of the antenna has been constructed and shows adequate impedance matching, radiation pattern and gain for cognitive radio applications.
