A Novel Monopole Dual Band-Notched Antenna with Tapered Slot for UWB Applications
In this article, a novel microstrip-line fed monopole dual band-notched antenna with tapered slot for UWB applications is presented. The tapered slot, making the antenna have a scissors-like shape, is taken into account to enhance the wideband characteristics. In addition, the dual notched bands, from 3.3 to 3.7 GHz and from 5.15 to 5.85 GHz, are achieved by inserting slots on the ground plane and adding circle arc stubs on the radiating patch. Details of the antenna design are described, a theoretical and experimental investigation of the antenna is given as well.
