Design of Compact Printed Ultra Wideband antenna with notch band characteristic [ ]

The research thesis is aimed towards the designing of a compact printed ultra wideband antenna (UWB) with dual band notched characteristics. It is a planar monopole micro-strip fed designed antenna structure. The radiating patch is rectangular in shape with a partial ground plane. The 3.0 GHz Wi-max band is rejected in addition to the 5.0 band used in Wireless Local Area networks (WLAN’s). Simulation is done using the “High Frequency Structure Simulator” and the measured values are analyzed. The results obtained after using the optimized parameters depict UWB characteristics while rejecting the two bands frequencies.
