Abstract

A novel ultra-wideband (UWB) tapered slot antenna (TSA) is proposed that has both enhanced impedance bandwidth enough to cover UWB systems and band cutoff characteristic of 5 GHz WLAN band limited by IEEE802.11a and HIPERLAN/2. To achieve these two characteristics of wide bandwidth and partial band cutoff at the TSA, a broadband microstrip-slotline transition with multi-arm stubs and λ/4 short stubs, respectively, is used. From measured results, it is observed that wide bandwidth of about 2 octaves from 2.8 to 11.09 GHz for the VSWR<2 is achieved, while 5.05-5.93 GHz is cutoff with the radiated power of this cutoff band effectively suppressed as about -9 dB for the peak power level of other bands.
