All these frequency bands lie within the UWB frequency spectrum. The proposed antenna is suitable for portable communication applications due to its compact dimensions. It sharply notches the existing frequency bands to mitigate the interference caused by nearby wireless communication systems within UWB frequency range. The sharp notching is achieved by the combination of complementary split ring resonators (CSRR) on the radiating semi-circular patch, split ring resonators (SRR) placed at the junction of the feedline, and a pair of defected ground structures (DGS). All notched bands can be well controlled and shifted and the equivalent lumped model of the notched bands are also developed for validation. The proposed antenna simulated, and measured results show better performance over the present state-of-the-art designs. The proposed penta-notched UWB antenna possesses better reflection coefficient, VSWR, stable gain, and small foot print. The proposed antenna has a nearly omnidirectional radiation pattern in the passbands.
