Abstract

This paper proposes a coplanar waveguide-fed slot antenna with vertical rounded bow-tie slots for wideband harmonic suppression. Higher-order harmonics up to nine times the fundamental resonant frequency (9fo) of the slot antenna was successfully suppressed by adding the slots in the middle of the two slot arms. A prototype of the antenna that resonates at 1 GHz was fabricated. The measured input reflection coefficient of the antenna remains over -3 dB at up to 9.15 GHz, which demonstrates the wideband harmonic suppression capabilities.
