A Novel Miniaturized Vivaldi Antenna for Ultra-Wideband Applications
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research C, Vol. 77, 123-131, 2017
Abstract
A novel Vivaldi antenna utilizing a tapered slot edge with a stepped structure (TSESS) to achieve miniaturization is presented in this paper. Compared with a conventional Vivaldi antenna of the same size, the proposed TSESS significantly extends the low-end bandwidth limitation and also improves the low-end antenna gain and radiation characteristics. The proposed antenna is fabricated and tested for validating the reliability of the design. The measured results show reasonable agreement with simulated ones. Moreover, a good time-domain response is indicated from the measured group delay, showing that the antenna meets the requirements of a UWB system.
