Because of their broadband characteristics Ultra-Wide Band (UWB) antennas continue to capture the interest of many researchers and developers worldwide especially those involved in areas such as high data rate wireless communications, indoor positioning and through-the-wall imaging. However, these systems are required to work side by side with other narrowband applications such as WiMAX and WLAN systems without causing any performance degradation. For this reason, a monopole disk antenna is presented here to cover the whole IEEE 802.15.4a UWB designation with two band notches at 3.5 and 5/6 GHz for interference-free operation with WiMAX and WLAN systems, respectively.
