Abstract

In this chapter, a compact dual band notched Ultrawideband (UWB) antenna with fractal shaped Hilbert curve slots (HCS) is presented. The antenna covers the frequency band from 2.5 GHz to 12 GHz for VSWR=2 and also shows stable radiation patterns throughout the operating frequency band. By introducing Hilbert Curve fractal Slots (HCS) in the antenna, band notch characteristics have been achieved. The HCS renders the capability to reject 5.15-5.825 GHz band assigned for IEEE 802.11a and HYPERLAN/2 and also 7.9-8.4 GHz band assigned for X-Band uplink satellite communication systems where the gain is suppressed very well in the desired WLAN and X-Band. The antenna gain varies from 3dBi to 5dBi over the operating band. Novelty of this design lies in achieving miniature notch structure which has higher degree of freedom for adjusting notch parameters and unsusceptible to coupling with other notches. The antenna can be used for various mobile communication services such as DCS, IMT-2000, UMTS, DMB and UWB.
