Abstract—In order for the interference of electromagnetic waves to be reduced in narrow band communications (WLAN, WiMAX and satellite communication), this paper presents a novel compact, low-cost, low-profile microstrip-fed line equipped with a single and dual band-notched ultra-wideband (UWB) patch antenna. A notched band is achieved at approximately 5.15-5.35 GHz and a 5.725-5.85 GHz that corresponds to WLAN IEEE802.11. To achieve this band notch band, an array of a four-element rectangular split ring resonator (SRR) is inserted into the neighbouring feed line. Moreover, in order to attain a WLAN band rejection and the 7.9-8.4 GHz X-band frequencies for satellite communication, three different sized complementary rectangular SRRs are etched in the ground plane,. The results led to the conclusion that the proposed antenna can be deemed a suitable candidate for applications of UWB communication having the property of single and double band notches.

Index Terms—WLAN, X-band, SRR, CSRR, ultra-wideband (UWB) antenna, band notch.
