A novel frequency notched ultra-wideband (UWB) fractal printed slot antenna is proposed. The antenna is similar in configuration to a conventional microstrip-fed wide slot antenna, however, by introducing a Koch fractal slot, not only the size of the antenna is reduced significantly but also frequency notched function is achieved. Several properties of the antenna such as impedance bandwidth, frequency notched characteristics, radiation patterns and gain, have been investigated numerically and experimentally in detail. As will be seen, the operation bandwidth of the antenna is from 2.85 to 12GHz, in which a frequency notched band from 4.65 to 6.40GHz may be achieved, and relatively stable, omnidirectional radiation performance over the entire frequency range has also been obtained.
