Abstract

Three notched bands are generated, at selected frequencies, in an extremely wideband base antenna to support multiple communication systems while avoiding inference from other existing narrowband systems. The design of a fully printed extremely wideband antenna and creating triple band-notched functions are addressed in this paper. Measurements demonstrate that the proposed printed base antenna has an extremely wide 2:1 VSWR bandwidth from 0.72 GHz, to 25 GHz with a ratio bandwidth of 34:1. The antenna has a simple structure and can be fabricated at low cost for multi-band and wideband wireless communication devices. Besides, this paper presents a technique to form three notched bands within the operating frequency range of the base antenna. By introducing a half-wavelength U-shaped defected ground structure (DGS) and a pair of quarter-wavelength open arc-shaped slots to the radiating patch, three notched bands are created to prevent interference from WLAN (2.4-2.484 GHz and 5.15-5.85 GHz) systems and downlinks of X-band satellite communication (7.25-7.75 GHz) systems.
