A Tri-band-notched UWB Antenna with Low Mutual Coupling between the Band-notched Structures
A compact printed U-shape Ultra-Wide Band (UWB) antenna with triple band-notched characteristics is presented. The proposed antenna, with compact size of 24Ã?33mm2, yields an impedance bandwidth of 2.8-12GHz for VSWR is greater than 2, except the notched bands. The notched bands are realized by introducing two different types of slots. Two C-shape half-wavelength slots are etched on the radiating patch to obtain two notched bands in 3.3-3.7GHz for WiMAX and 7.25-7.75GHz for downlink of X-band satellite communication systems.
