ABSTRACT This article reviews the state of the art in broadband antennas for emerging UWB applications and addresses the important issues of the broadband antenna design for UWB applications. First, a variety of planar monopoles with finite ground planes are reviewed. Next, the roll antennas with enhanced radiation performance are outlined. After that, the planar antennas printed on PCBs are described. A directional antipodal Vivaldi antenna is also presented for UWB applications. Last, a UWB antenna for wearable applications is exemplified

    ABSTRACT: In this article, a novel monopole antenna which consists of a radiating patch with two modified L-shaped notches to achieve broad bandwidth is presented for various mobile communication services such as wireless broadband, wireless local area network, digital mobile broadcasting, and ultrawideband (UWB) applications. The proposed antenna is designed to operate over 2-11.2 GHz for S11<-10 dB. Details of the proposed antenna design approach and measured results are also presented and discussed. The novel monopole antenna has wide band impedance bandwidth, compact size, and low fabrication cost, which are suitable for communication services and UWB application.

    ABSTRACT: This article proposes a new ultrawideband coplanar waveguide‐ fed‐ triangular antenna operating in the FCC band (3.1–10.6) GHz. This antenna employs Koch fractal to increase the bandwidth of the triangular antenna. Two iterations of this fractal antenna are fabricated and tested and found to have good agreement with numerical simulations obtained using HFSS. Full parametric study of the antenna is provided. © 2012 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. Int J RF and Microwave CAE, 2013.

    ABSTRACT: A printed monopole ultra wideband (UWB) antenna with frequency band-notched characteristics is proposed and investigated. The antenna consists of a half-disk shaped structure combined with an inverted isosceles trapezoid structure. To achieve the frequency band notched characteristics, an open-ended thin slit with a length of about one quarter guided wavelength is inserted on the radiator. Multiple slits can be employed to realize multiple frequency band notched characteristics. To validate the concept, two prototypes are designed, fabricated and tested. The first is a single band notched UWB antenna whereas the second is a dual band notched UWB antenna. The simulated and measured results of both antennas are presented shown a reasonable agreement between them. The results also confirm the proposed UWB antenna design can achieve superior dual band-notch performance at desired frequency bands.
