Abstract

In this article, a couple of UWB antennas are presented. These antennas have the shape of two overlapped circles. The presented antennas are polarization diversity antennas with and without dual band reject filters. Measurements show that the antennas work well within the whole UWB. Antennas have practical reflection parameters S11 and S22 lower than -10 dB, practical coupling parameters S12 and S21 lower than -15 dB, an Envelope Correlation Coefficient lower than 0.015 and a diversity gain between 9.97 to 9.99 dB. Simulations of the antennas are done using the CST software.
