Abstract
In this paper, a compact UWB printed monopole antenna design is proposed. The
monopole antenna has the form of an E-shaped structure printed on a substrate with relative
dielectric constant of 3.38, and thickness of 1.52 mm. The matching through the UWB response
is satisfied using a reduced ground plane. The proposed antenna is fed by a 50­ unsymmetrical
microstrip line. The ground plane is printed beneath the microstrip line. Modeling and performance evaluation of the proposed antenna have been carried out using the commercially available
electromagnetic simulator, IE3D from Zeland Software Inc. A parametric study is performed to
show the effects of the different antenna parameters on the overall antenna performance. The
performance of the antenna is mainly affected by geometrical and electrical parameters, such as
the width and length of the branches of the E-shape structure, feed gap as well as the ground
plane. Simulation results show that the proposed antenna possesses an operating bandwidth, for
return loss · ¡10 dB, extending from approximately 2.93 GHz to about 14 GHz which covers the
entire UWB band of 3.1 GHz to 10.6 GHz.
