New Simple Flower Shaped Reconfigurable Band-Notched UWB Antenna Using Single Varactor Diode
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research C, Vol. 76, 197-206, 2017
Abstract
In this paper, a new flower-shaped microstrip line feed reconfigurable band-notched UWB monopole antenna using single varactor diode is introduced and fabricated. Different notch frequencies can be obtained using different capacitor values. The effect of changing the varactor position is also examined. The flower shape is first optimized to obtain UWB characteristics. Then, a slot is made in the microstrip line to be loaded later with a single varactor diode. A wide range of notch frequencies can be obtained using this simple configuration which cover most of the narrow band coexistence systems. The notch frequency can be lower by increasing the capacitance value. The notch frequency covers the WLAN band when C=0.8 PF and covers the WIMAX band when the capacitance is changed to 0.7 PF for the same antenna configuration and varactor position. Two prototypes of the proposed antenna using two different single capacitor elements with capacitances 0.6 PF and 1.5 PF are fabricated, and their reflection characteristics are measured and compared with the simulated ones. Notch frequencies at 6.1 GHz and 4.3 GHz are obtained respectively in both simulated and measured antenna structures. The proposed antenna a directive radiation pattern in E-plane and omnidirectional pattern in H-plane. Also the gain is suppressed in the notched frequencies. The group delay is nearly stable in the UWB frequency range with very little variations, but it is distorted sharply at the notch frequencies. So, the proposed antenna is a good candidate for the modern UWB systems.
