Abstract: A UWB antenna with simple semi circular monopole antenna fed by a microstrip line with a semi circular ground plane is presented in this paper to achieve a operating bandwidth from 3.1GHz to 10.6GHz. Low cost FR4 glass epoxy material with a dimesnion of 30mm×32mm×1.6mm has been used to design the antenna. Proposed antenna is incorporated with two complimentary rectangular ring slots with discontinuities. The rectangular slots are placed such that the discontinuities face opposite to each other and it will generate a static resonance which is the reason for the dual notch bands covering the frequency ranges of WiMAX and WLAN.
Keywords: Monopole, Complimentary Slots, Partial Ground, Dual Notch.
