E-Shaped Multilayer Aperture Coupled Patch Antenna with Notching Characteristics for UWB Applications
In this paper, a stacked layer aperture coupled E-shaped antenna has been presented. The proposed antenna has been designed for Ultra Wide Band (UWB) applications with a notch at 5-6GHz frequency band. The proposed antenna is having an E-shaped top patch and is fed by aperture coupled feed technique, and to realize the band notching function, the shape of the ground has been modified. Roger RT/Duroid 5880 of dielectric constant 2.2mm has been used as substrate layers of antenna with 0.38mm thickness of each substrate layer.
