The use of ultrawideband technology in many applications implies the use of a suitable radiating structure, especially for pulsed systems. The development of a triangular CPW-fed printed antenna with specific ground plane shape is presented. First the triangular element was optimized to minimize return losses and size of the antenna in the [3.1-10.6] frequency band. The evolution of radiation patterns with frequency was also studied, as changes in phase center position and radiation characteristics alter the integrity of transmitted pulses. Thus the antenna ground plane shape was modified in order to maintain almost constant radiation patterns over the entire bandwidth. Time domain measurement methods were used to characterize the antennas and validate these improvements. The procedure is presented and results are plotted in a 3D format and discussed.
