Miniaturized Band-notched UWB Antenna with Improved Fidelity Factor and Pattern Stability
MetadataShow full item record
This article presents a novel miniaturized monopole UWB antenna with enhanced band rejection characteristics at 5.5 GHz. The proposed configuration is derived from octagonal band notched UWB antenna which consists of W-shaped slotted ground plane and an open ended λ_g/4 hook shaped resonator as a band-notched element. By using proper miniaturization of the octagonal monopole and ground plane, 50% reduction in main structure can be realized without changing the dimension of resonator. Frequency and time domain performance of the proposed miniaturized antenna design is compared with conventional half size and full size structures. The noticeable improvements in terms of band rejection characteristics, radiation pattern stability and fidelity factor confirm the effectiveness of the proposed miniaturization technique. Furthermore, the proposed antenna provides much wider operating bandwidth (VSWR < 2) within 3.1-17.2 GHz with the exception around 5-6 GHz.
