In this paper, a quad-band-notch Ultra Wideband (UWB) antenna is presented. The band-notch is achieved by introducing two meander-line slots in elliptical radiation element, a defected ground plane L-shape slot and an inverted U-slot in feed line. Four notches are achieved centered at frequencies WiMAX 3.5 GHz, IEEE 802.11a/n 5.2 GHz and 5.8 GHz and downlink X-band 7.4 GHz. The substrate employed is low-loss Rogers 5880. Measured results indicate that the proposed design not only supports UWB bandwidth requirements but also rejects four narrow bands to avoid possible interference with existing communication systems. Moreover, the proposed antenna has relatively omni directional radiation patterns in passbands.

ConferenceInternational Symposium on Antennas and Propagation, ISAP 2015
Abbreviated titleAdvancing antenna and propagation research for a connected world
OtherThe International Symposium on Antennas and Propagation (ISAP) is the premium antennas and propagation conference in Asia-Pacific region. Under the technical sponsorship of IEEE and IEICE, the 2015 International Symposium on Antennas and Propagation (ISAP2015) will take place at the Wrest Point Hotel, Hobart, Tasmania, Australia. ISAP2015 will provide a forum for researchers, engineers and industry experts to present recent research breakthroughs, technical advancement and new findings in antennas and propagation. A particular focus of the conference will be recent advances in the context of the latest wireless communications and sensing systems. It will also offer an exciting social program in the picturesque Hobart. Accepted and presented papers will be published in the conference proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases.
