Extending the Bandwidth of an Elliptical Monopole Antenna (.PDF Download)

Wide-bandwidth antennas represent a more compact alternative to the use of multiple antennas to cover the same bandwidth. Numerous design approaches are available for achieving wide antenna bandwidth, including an elliptical monopole antenna developed by the authors. It consists of an elliptical patch fed by coplanar-waveguide (CPW) transmission line and matched to 50 Ω for wideband operation. The antenna was developed through comprehensive parametric studies and the design aid of the three
