Abstract

A novel type of ultra-wide band (UWB) crossed semi-ring monopole antenna with band notched characteristics is presented. The proposed antenna consist a wideband crossed semi-ring monopole and four L-shaped slots, producing band-notched characteristic. Effects of the various parameters for antenna performances are discussed. The central frequency and bandwidth of the notched band can be controlled easily by adjusting three key design parameters. The time domain responses are simulated and studied. A prototype is constructed and measured finally.
