Abstract

This paper proposes an ultrawideband (UWB) Vivaldi antenna with switchable and tunable band-notch characteristics. One stepped-impedance resonator (SIR), which has high quality factor Q and small size, is introduced to create band-notched characteristic with narrow notch band and high notch band edge selectivity. By loading two varactor diodes, a wide tunable notched band is achieved. The center frequency of notch band can tune from 3.1 GHz-6.8 GHz. In order to make the full use of UWB spectrum when there is on coexisting narrow-band applications, switchable band-notch characteristic is desired. Through rational parameters design, the center frequency of notched band is out of UWB range when the DC bias voltage of the varactor diode is 0 V. In this way, switchable band-notch characteristic is achieved.
