Comparative Analysis of Exponentially Shaped Microstrip-Fed Planar Monopole Antenna With and Without Notch
In this paper, the authors describe the comparison of a microstrip-fed monopole ultra-wideband antenna with and without notch. In case of notch the notch-band characteristics are achieved by C-shaped ring resonator. The paper gives better understanding of antenna parameters such as return loss, VSWR etc. and its variation in performance of antenna with and without notch. Also presents the effect of parameters of antenna with notch on gain. Finally, simulation is done using Ansoft HFSS software. Measurements indicate that antenna operates in the band from 2.25-10.2GHz and has band-rejected characteristics in 5.16-5.85GHz which covers wireless local area network band.
