Abstract

In this paper, a planar monopole antenna for Ultra-Wideband (UWB) communications with a notched behavior in the two sub-bands UNII1 and UNII2 of the Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) band is presented. The antenna geometry is described by means of a spline curve and a rectangular slot. Numerical and experimental results are reported to assess the effectiveness of the proposed design in terms of impedance matching and radiation characteristics.
