Abstract

A novel Bézier spline-based geometry for printed monopole antennas is presented. Quadratic curves are used to describe the outline of the
radiating element. The geometry is optimised by a genetic algorithm. A small number of control points are used to define the geometry, ensuring a small search space for the GA. The resulting antenna has an impedance bandwidth from 1.44 to 14.7 GHz.
