Abstract

In this paper, a novel microstrip-fed compact antenna with dual band-notched characteristic is presented for ultra-wideband (UWB) applications. Assisted with symmetrical open-circuited stubs, a UWB impedance matching can be achieved. A novel modified capacitively loaded loop (CLL) resonator is proposed to realize the dual notched bands. By symmetrically placing a couple of proposed resonators in the vicinity of the feed line, dual band-notched properties in 3.4-3.7 GHz for WiMAX and 5.15-5.825 GHz for WLAN are generated. The good performance of the dual notched bands, stable gain, and radiation patterns in the operating bands make the proposed antenna a good candidate for various UWB applications.
