A compact printed ultra-wideband (UWB) monopole antenna with dual band-notched characteristics is presented. One complementary split-ring resonator (CSRR) is etched inside the patch of the monopole antenna to achieve dual notch frequency bands. A practical example for a UWB antenna (working from 2.90 to 12 GHz) is demonstrated, with one notch frequency band at 3.40-3.48 GHz and the other at 5.40-5.98 GHz. In addition, the effect of the dimensions of the CSRR on the dual notch frequency bands is also analysed.
