    ABSTRACT: A novel dual band notched antenna is presented in this paper. First, an Ultra Wide Band (UWB) antenna structure with a rhombic radiating patch and a simple ground plane is proposed. Then, aiming at the filtering of interfering frequency bands from UWB frequency range, two pairs of joint slots are embedded in the antenna body. By the inclusion of these slots, surface current distribution is disturbed at the vicinity of the slots and as a result, 5.15-5.825GHz Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) band and 8.025-8.4GHz International Telecommunication Union (ITU) band are rejected. In the next step, with the aim of comparing the presented antenna with the previously designed structures regarding different features such as size, bandwidth, gain variations and number of the filtered frequency bands simultaneously, an efficient framework is established. The proposed method is based on Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP) that is one of the Multi Attribute Decision Making (MADM) techniques. The design process, simulation and measured results, and the AHP based method will be discussed in detail.

    ABSTRACT: A new tunable plasmonic biosensor is proposed by embedding liquid crystals in the slit region of a corrugated plasmonic nanoslit array. The absorption spectrum of the structure and, thus, the sensing wavelength can be controlled by applying voltage to the electrode parts of the device. The interaction between the waveguide mode inside the slit and the surface plasmon polaritons on the corrugation surface can be modified using the electrooptical effect of the liquid crystals. Our numerical simulations with the finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) method reveal a large tuning of the absorption spectrum up to 100 nm. In addition to the tunability feature, the structure has a high sensitivity of 570 nm/RIU. The sensing performance of the device is evaluated by performing homogeneous biochemical sensing simulations. The special feature of the proposed structure gives it an opportunity to be used as an efficient element in integrated photonics circuits for miniaturization and tuning purposes.

    ABSTRACT: A new approach for designing a single-feed circular microstrip antenna with dual-band/multi-band circularly polarized (CP) radiation are demonstrated and studied experimentally. It is presented that by embedding pairs of asymmetrical ring-shaped arc slots to the boundary of both circular patch and the ground plane the impedance bandwidth of the antenna increases. This can be achieved by making use of both mutual coupling between the resonances of the ring-shaped arc slots and the fundamental resonances of the circular antenna. Also, by extending the ring-shaped arc slots out with narrow slots, the circular microstrip patch antenna can perform dual-band/multi-band CP radiation. Further details of the proposed CP microstrip antenna designs are described, and typical experimental results are presented and discussed.

    ABSTRACT: A novel coplanar waveguide (CPW)-fed monopole as a radiating element of an antenna is proposed for chip size realization. The antenna has been designed on the basis of the elliptical geometry. The proposed CPW slot antenna is compact with the size of 26×36×1.6 mm3 which is printed on a cheap substrate of FR-4 and also is smaller than the previously proposed antennas. The parameters of this antenna were optimized through numerical simulations in Ansoft HFSS, after which the antenna was fabricated and characterized. The measurement results show that the proposed antenna has a -10 dB return loss bandwidth of 5.12 to 5.91 GHz, which covers the entire required band for Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMAX) and Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) 802.11a standard.

    ABSTRACT: This letter presents a broadband, high efficiency patch antenna that utilizes a novel complementary split ring resonators(CSRRs) embedded on the ground plane. The demonstrated approach results in a significant improvement in impedance bandwidth, efficiency, compactness and directivity in comparison to a conventional microstrip antenna. A coaxial-fed microstrip antenna(MA) is integrated with a simple CSRRs structure that is cut from the ground plane. Then, two crossovers are introduced to the conventional CSRRs structure in order to both compactness of the structure and reverse the current flow along the strips. Inserting crossovers with via bridges to the CSRRs structure facilitates a nearly complete impedance match to the source over a wider bandwidth and also maintain a high, 89%, radiation efficiency. The designs and their performance characteristics were simulated with the High Frequency Structure Simulator (HFSS) and verified using the time domain CST Microwave studio simulator and Sonnet EM software. Test results of the fabricated designs show a good correlation with simulated outcomes, validating the design principles.

    ABSTRACT: A compact reconfigurable microstrip slot antenna with switchable single and dual band notch functions for ultrawideband (UWB) applications is presented in this study. In the proposed structure, an additional resonance is excited by etching two symmetrical notches on the feed-line and thereby a UWB characteristic is obtained. Then, by cutting two slots on the radiating patch and embedding two positive-intrinsic-negative (PIN) diodes along these slots, switchable single and dual band notch performances are added to the antenna performance. By changing the bias states of the PIN diodes, the antenna is capable of exhibiting four different performances of UWB spectrum coverage, UWB coverage with single rejection of the wireless local area network (WLAN) band, UWB coverage with single rejection of the WiMAX and C-band spectrum, and UWB coverage with dual band notch function at the WLAN, the WiMAX and the C-band frequencies. Good agreement between the simulated and the measured results is achieved at different performances of the antenna. The designed antenna has a small size of 20 ?? 20 mm2 and the measured results reveal that the fabricated antenna has good radiation behaviour in the UWB frequency spectrum with switchable band notch functions at 3.15-3.85 and 5.43-6.1 GHz which can eliminate the UWB frequency band interference with the WiMAX, the C-band and the WLAN systems.

    ABSTRACT: A novel printed planar monopole antenna for LTE multi-input and multi-output (MIMO) application is proposed. By adding six ellipticals on top of the antenna, we enhance the lower frequency bandwidth. The idea for this is gotten from [1, 2]. These papers designed by using log periodic technique with the number of rectangle and flare elements . Also, by cutting E-shaped slots in the ground plane, additional resonance is excited, and hence much wider impedance bandwidth can be produced. The proposed antenna provides all of the LTE bands between 0.65 GHz to 4 GHz. In order to provide low mutual coupling and envelope correlation, two of the antennas are combined with orthogonal polarizations. The mutual coupling and envelope correlation coefficient (ECC) of the antenna are lower than -21 dB and 0.002 across the operation bands, and total active reflection coefficient (TARC) is less than 0.35. The designed antenna has small size area of 55 × 94 mm 2 , which has a small size with respect to recently reported antennas. Index Terms -Long term evolution (LTE), multi-input and multi-output (MIMO), monopole antenna, and mutual coupling.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, a compact ultra-wideband (UWB) band-pass filter with sharp roll-off and improved out-of –band performance is designed and manufactured. In the proposed structure, modified one quarter-wavelength cross-shaped coupled lines (CCLs), and also radial stub loaded resonator (RSLR), are implemented in order to reduce the total size of the UWB BPF. The RSLR is able to control two tuneable transmission zeros (TZs) separately and the CCLs can be properly designed so that the unwanted pass band is rejected. A prototype of the proposed UWB BPF is fabricated and tested. The measured results are in good agreement with the simulated data and the proposed structure shows a sharp selectivity and good filtering performance in the frequency band of interest. Keywords: Band-pass filter (BPF), Cross-Shaped Coupled Lines (CCLs), multiple-mode resonator (MMR), radial stub loaded resonator (RSLR), stub-loaded resonator (SLR), ultra-wideband (UWB).

    ABSTRACT: This letter presents the investigation results on a novel circularly polarized square-slot antenna (CPSSA) array designed to operate at a frequency of 5.5 GHz. In order to realize the proposed antenna array, four miniature circular polarized square-slot antennas are used with L-shape grounded strips located at the slots' opposite corners to reduce cross polarization. The antenna is fed by symmetric coplanar waveguide. The CPSSA element achieves a bandwidth of 16.6% for an axial ratio ≤ 3 dB. The CPSSA's performance is further enhanced with the construction of a novel 2 × 2 antenna array that is designed using sequentially rotated feed technique. The 3-dB axial ratio of the array extends to approximately 2 GHz with an impedance bandwidth of 31%. The CPSSA array was designed to operate over the frequency range between 4 and 6.825 GHz corresponding to an impedance bandwidth of 52% for VSWR

    ABSTRACT: A novel printed ultrawideband (UWB) slot antenna with reconfigurable band-notch characteristics is presented in this letter. The proposed antenna consists of a modified rectangular radiation patch with a circular and three rectangular-shaped slots etched on it. Additionally, by cutting two triangular-shaped slits on a modified ground plane, practical fractional bandwidth of more than 120% (3.12-12.51 GHz), defined by -10 dB return loss, is achieved. In order to generate single and dual band-notch characteristics, two p-i-n diodes are mounted across the circular slot. The designed antenna has small size of 20 × 20 mm2 with switchable single notched bands of 3.12-3.84 GHz WiMAX and 5-6.07 GHz WLAN, when diode 1 and diode 2 are respectively on. Also, dual bands of 3.12-3.82 and 4.9-6.06 GHz are eliminated from whole frequency band when both diodes are concurrently on.

    ABSTRACT: A new modified microstrip monopole antenna with dual-band operation is presented for mobile communication applications. For this purpose, radiation patch and ground plane of the antenna are considerably modified. By using these modifications, including of a pair of modified U-shaped slots in the ground plane and a complex form of the slot, etched on the patch, two frequency wide bands of 1.38-3.98 GHz (97%) and 5.15-6.2 GHz (18%) are achieved. In the second design of the antenna, a very small slot as a switch is employed in the special positions on the ground plane to change and control the frequency response. Different cases such as multiple and single bands as well as narrow and wide bands between 1.5 and 6 GHz can be covered. The total size of the antennas is only 20 × 34 mm2. Full parametric simulation of the proposed modifications and measurement results of two manufactured prototypes are presented and discussed.

    ABSTRACT: A new incorporated planar ultrawideband (UWB)/reconfigurable-slot antenna is proposed for cognitive radio applications. A slot resonator is precisely embedded in the disc monopole radiator to achieve an individual narrowband antenna. A varactor diode is also deliberately inserted across the slot, providing a reconfigurable frequency function in the range of 5–6 GHz. The slot is fed by an off-centered microstrip line that creates the desired matching across the tunable frequency band. The measured antenna parameters are presented and discussed, confirming the simulation results.

    ABSTRACT: A novel UWB microstrip-fed monopole antenna with modified structure has been designed and analyzed. The main body of the antenna under consideration consists of a quasi square radiating patch with tapered steps and a modified slotted ground plane. Due to the repeatedly cutting of three notches on the radiating patch and also inserting a rectangular slot and three tapered steps on the ground plane, a new resonance is excited and a wide bandwidth is obtained. By applying two sleeves with proper sizes to the antenna structure, an even wider impedance bandwidth is achieved. The antenna has a compact size of 18×12×1.6mm3 and operates over the frequency range of 2.34-21.43 GHz (9.15:1; 160%). The impedance bandwidth improvement process of the proposed antenna is presented and discussed in detail.
