A Coplanar Waveguide Fed Hexagonal Shape Ultra Wide Band Antenna with WiMAX and WLAN Band Rejection
MetadataShow full item record
In this paper, a coplanar waveguide (CPW) fed hexagonal shape planar antenna has been considered for ultra-wide band (UWB). This antenna is then modified to obtain dual band rejection. The Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) and Wireless Microwave Access (WiMAX) band rejections are realized by symmetrically incorporating a pair of L-shape slots within the ground plane as well as a couple of I-shape stubs inserted on the bottom side of radiating patch. The proposed antenna has stop bands of 5.05-5.92 GHz and 3.19-3.7 GHz while maintaining the wideband performance from 2.88 - 13.71 GHz with reflection coefficient of ≤ -10 dB. The antenna exhibits satisfactory omni-directional radiation characteristics throughout its operating band. The peak gain varies from 2 dB to 6 dB in the entire UWB frequency regions except at the notch bands. Surface current distributions are used to analyze the effects of the L-slot and I-shape stub. The measured group delay has small variation within the operating band except notch bands and hence the proposed antenna may be suitable for UWB applications.
