Abstract

This research puts forward a design regarding a novel compact bi-directional UWB (1.9–10.6 GHz) tapered slot patch antenna that has dual band-notches characteristics within 3.4–3.9 GHz applicable for WiMax application and 5-6 GHz applicable for WLAN (IEEE 802.11a and HIPERLAN/2 systems). A parasitic quasi-trapezoidal shape single split ring resonator SRR is positioned to secure the first WiMax band-notch to minimize the electromagnetic interference occurring in WiMax band. A single circular complementary split-ring resonator (CSRR) is etched to secure the second band-notch. Simulated and measured results showed a good match, thereby signifying that the proposed antenna is an optimum candidate for UWB communication applications along with the guide lines design to employ the notch bands in the preferred frequency regions.
