Abstract

This paper describes the design and parametric study of a planar rectangular ultra-wide band antenna (UWB). The proposed design exploits U-shaped notch and T-shaped slot with circularly truncated corners on the radiating patch along with stepped microstrip feed. Circular truncation is also used at the corners of the partial ground plane with a rectangular notch along with an electromagnetically coupled truncated rectangular strip. This antenna operates in a frequency band ranging from 2.975 to 10.684 GHz with an impedance bandwidth nearly 7.709 GHz. This antenna finds its applications in 5.2/5.8 GHz WLAN, 3.5/5.5 GHz WiMAX, 4 GHz C band, and lower frequencies of X band. The effect of the truncated ground plane and the dimensions of U, T and rectangular shaped notches on the optimization of the return loss is parameterized and discussed in detail.
