A Miniature UWB Semi-Circle Monopole Printed Antenna

Progress In Electromagnetics Research Letters, Vol. 23, 157-163, 2011
Abstract
A semi-circle monopole printed antenna is proposed. Its radiation unit and the ground plane are in the same shape, and both of them are coplanar-printed. The antenna is fed by a microstrip line, which is connected to the radiation unit through a via-hole. The measured impedance bandwidth is about 3.1GHz-15.1GHz with VSWR<2, and the ratio bandwidth can reach 4.9:1. The omnidirectional characteristic is also excellent in H-plane. Moreover, because of the introduction of the semi-circle radiation unit and the ground plane, the length of the radiation unit can be miniaturized in polarization direction, which is only 14% of wavelength of the lowest operating frequency. The antenna size is just 29 mm×29.5 mm×1.0 mm, which can make it well integrate into UWB communication systems.
