In this letter, a band-notched ultrawideband (UWB) antenna is presented and the notched-band characteristic is realized by a compact coplanar waveguide (CPW) resonant cell (CCRC). The antenna with a total size of 46 mm $,times,$30 mm operates in a band from 2.67 to over 12 GHz, and shows omnidirectional radiation patterns. Measurements indicate that the antenna presents a notched band from 5.10 to 5.94 GHz for $ VSWR ge 3:1$, which covers the wireless local area network (WLAN) band. The time-domain behaviors and the CCRC are discussed and the group delay is given experimentally. Also, parametric studies are performed numerically in the end.
