Abstract

The planar monopole antenna is shown to provide extremely wideband impedance characteristics. Recently, many techniques to tailor and optimize the impedance bandwidth of these antennas have been investigated. These include the use of bevels, slots and shorting posts. These antennas are becoming popular, and have been proposed for modern and future wideband wireless applications. The radiation performance is also shown to be acceptable over a wide frequency range.
