Abstract
A coplanar waveguide (CPW) fed novel planar ultra-wideband antenna with a band-notch characteristic is presented. The proposed antenna consists of a rectangular metal radiation patch and a tapered arc-shaped ground plane. To achieve ultra wideband, three modifications are introduced, the first one is to remove a 90-degree fan angle on the upper corners of the patch, the second one is to shape the bottom of the patch into an arc, and the third modification is to remove a small fan angle on each side of the ground plane near the feeding line. Simulation results show that the proposed antenna operates over 3.0 to 23 GHz for VSWR < 2. By embedding a C-shaped slot in the radiating patch, a frequency band notch between the bandwidth of 5 to 6 GHz for Wireless LAN (WLAN) will be obtained. All simulations in this work were carried out by using the electromagnetic software Ansoft HFSS 11. Compared with the recently proposed antennas, this antenna has advantages in wide bandwidth, good band-notch characteristic, compact in size and easy design. Details of the proposed antenna are presented, and simulated results show that the antenna has stable radiation patterns and good gain flatness over its whole frequency band.
