An improved UWB Patch Antenna Design using Multiple Notches and Finite Ground Plane

A.P Padmavathy M.Ganesh Madhan About the authors


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.
