Ultra-WideBand (UWB) is one of the recent topics that received a great concern from academia and industry. However, UWB found many difficulties to be standardized due to the overlay working that made UWB an important potential interference source to many licensed and unlicensed spectrum throughout the band 3.1-to-10.6 GHz. This make many industries worried about deploying and standardizing this promising technology. Many techniques have been introduced by academia a friendly UWB design that can mitigate interference. One of these technologies recently proposed is band-notched technique. In this paper, the authors propose a compact ultra-wideband microstrip antenna with triple band-notched 5.32 GHz, 8.45 GHz and 10.83 GHz.
