Printed Tapered Compact UWB Antenna with Single Band Notch Characteristics

A simple and compact microstrip line-fed ultra-wideband planar monopole antenna with single band-notch characteristics is presented. Wide impedance bandwidth is achieved by inserting two rectangular slots on both sides of the microstrip feed line on the ground plane. Band notching is achieved by embedding a half wavelength C-shaped slot on the radiator. The antenna is investigated numerically and validated experimentally for impedance matching, frequency notch characteristics and radiation performance. The designed antenna has a compact size of 18x19mm2 and operates over the frequency band between 3.1-12GHz for VSWR
