Circular Disk Monopole Antenna for Broadband Applications
Modern and future wireless systems are placing greater demands on antenna designs. This paper describes design of circular disk monopole antenna for operating frequency 3.0GHz-20.0GHz. This proposed antenna giving superior performance over conventional antennas with high gain 17dB, high directivity and symmetrical E-plane and H-plane characteristics which make this antenna suitable for Ultra-Wide Band (UWB) and broad band applications. This paper presents the return loss, input impedance, radiation patterns, VSWR, e-field, H-field and current distributions using CST software.
