Abstract

In this paper, we propose a quadruple band-notched ultra-wideband (UWB) antenna with a novel virus-mimicking structure. The proposed antenna is fed by coplanar waveguide in the FR4 material. It has a compact size of 27 × 29 × 0.8 mm3. In order to reject narrowband signal interference in ultra-wideband communication, the desired notches in WiMAX (3.3-3.6 GHz), WLAN (5.1-5.8 GHz), downlink X satellite communication system (7.25-7.75 GHz), and ITU 8GHz band (8.025-8.4 GHz) are realized. Except for these, impedance bandwidth of the designed antenna is less than -10 dB from 2.5 GHz to 15 GHz, with average gain of 3 dBi. At the same time, it basically meets the omnidirectional requirement. With low profile and compact structure, the proposed antenna can be integrated into the ultra-wideband system, which can meet the requirements of ultra-wideband communication and improve the anti-interference ability of ultra-wideband communication.
