Design of Dual Band-Notched UWB Antenna with the Hilbert-Curve Slots
In this letter, a planar monopole UWB antenna with dual band-notched characteristics is proposed. The band-stop characteristics is realized by embedding the 1st/3rd order Hilbert-curve slots on the patch. With the dimension adjustment of each Hilbert-curve slots, the band rejection from 3.3 to 3.7 GHz and from 5.3 to 6 GHz can be accomplished easily. The VSWR and radiation pattern of the fabricated antenna are measured, and the proposed antenna would be adequate to a UWB applications.
