A Band Notched Hexagonal Monopole UWB Antenna Using Open-Ended Slots
In this paper, a compact, hexagonal planar Ultra WideBand (UWB) monopole micro strip antenna is proposed that offers single band notch characteristics with enhanced rejection at frequency band centered at 5.5GHz of 5-6GHz. To realize this enhanced band notched characteristics at 5.5GHz, the open-ended inverted L-slot is embedded on the feed line of the proposed UWB antenna. Step-by-step development of the antenna with its analysis in the frequency domain is presented. The effects of various design parameters on design have also been analyzed using CAD FEKO 6.2 simulator using MoM.
