Abstract:   (2095 Views)
In this article, a very small flexible antenna with dual-band rejection specifications is proposed for operating in both wearable and ultra-wideband (UWB) applications. The overall size of this antenna is about 18×18×0.508 mm3 and by etching out two rectangular slot type single split-ring resonators (SRRs) of different dimensions from the radiating patch, dual band-notched specifications are obtained in WiMAX (3.3 GHz to 3.7 GHz) and WLAN (5.15 GHz to 5.825 GHz) wireless communication bands. The designed antenna operates over a wide impedance bandwidth (|S11| < –10 dB) from 2.1 GHz to 12 GHz which can cover the whole UWB band from 3.1 GHz to 10.6 GHz and reject the two mentioned bands. An asymmetrical partial ground plane and a beveled radiating patch are utilized to achieve 140% fractional bandwidth. Also, due to the good wearable radiation characteristics, this antenna can operate in industrial scientific medical (ISM) band from 2.4 GHz to 2.5 GHz. Meanwhile, the specific absorption ratio (SAR) value of the proposed antenna is less than the standard limit of 1.6 W/kg.
