Coplanar Waveguide-fed Ultra-wideband Planar Antenna with WLAN-band Rejection

A. Subbarao, S. Raghavan


A compact coplanar waveguide (CPW)-fed ultra-wideband (UWB) antenna is proposed with band-notched characteristic. The antenna has compact size of 29 x 31 mm2. A novel wide polygon-slot is inserted on the antenna to obtain good impedance matching and wide bandwidth. A tapered radiating patch is placed inside the polygon-slot. An embedded C-slot in the radiating patch avoids potential interference from WLAN band. The antenna is fabricated and measured. The measured results confirm that the antenna has operating frequency band of 3.1-10.6 GHz with notched band of 5.1-5.9 GHz. The antenna has stable radiation patterns and consistent gain over operating band. The time domain group delay of antenna is with in 1 ns except in notched band, which indicates good linear phase response. The results indicate that the antenna is good for portable UWB systems.
