A printed ultra-wideband antenna of compact size (0.36 lL 9 0.31 lL) that delivers bandwidth (S11 <= -10 dB) of 2.64–9.36 GHz (112%), with triple notches at 3.28–3.84, 5.08–5.44 and 5.62–6.06 GHz to reject contemporaneous wireless interventions such as WiMAX and WLAN is reported in this article. Theproposed antenna performance is established by both simulation and experimental measurement. The antenna affords gain variation from 2 to 5 dBi, radiation efficiency of 80% on an average, linear transfer function andnon-varying group delay response in its pass bandwidth while significant deviations are observed in the three notch bands. Bi-directional E-plane and non-directional H-plane patterns are testified in the antenna pass band.Antenna bandwidth is also measured in proximity of soil, wood and glass by keeping metal plate at bottom where an unaltered bandwidth response is observed that justify its capability to work for surface penetratingapplication.

A printed monopole filtenna fed by a co-planar waveguide with U-shaped split slot on patch and circular split ring resonator pairs at the other side of feed is proposed in this letter. The compact filtenna of dimension 0.32k 9 0.215k (k denotes wavelength corresponding to 2.68 GHz) is capable of providing largebandwidth from 2.68 to 8.72 GHz with dual frequency notch bands over 3.28–3.84 and 4.95–6.02 GHz, primarily to eliminate the WiMAX and WLAN interferences. The dual notched antenna performances are evaluatedby simulation and experimental measurement and compared to those of recently reported ultra-wideband (UWB) notched antennas. The proposed filtenna provides bidirectional E-plane and omni-directional H-plane radiation patterns with gain variation of 2–4.5 dBi and average radiation efficiency of 78% in its pass band. Also the filtenna offers minimal dispersion characteristic as stable group delay response, and linear variation of transfer function (S21) is achieved in its pass bandwidth
