AN IMPROVED UWB PATCH ANTENNA DESIGN USING MULTIPLE NOTCHES AND FINITE GROUND PLANE
Keywords:Finite ground plane, Microstrip patch antenna, multiple notches ultra wide band
An UWB antenna design with finite ground plane approach and multiple notches is reported. The antenna design provided a 10 dB bandwidth in excess of 8 GHz with better return loss characteristics. The antenna implemented in FR4 substrate, is compact and cost effective. The measured antenna parameters are in agreement with simulation.
