Investigations on planar ultrawideband (UWB) antenna with multiple band-notched characteristics based on half mode substrate integrated waveguide technology are presented. The proposed antenna consists of a planar UWB monopole antenna and a half mode substrate integrated waveguide cavity which can generate multiple stopbands by proper arrangement. Planar antennas with dual, triple and quadruple notched bands are designed and implemented. The notched frequencies and their bandwidths can be adjusted according to specification by altering the cavity and feed line independently. These antennas are fabricated with two-layer printed circuit board (PCB) process. Sharp and high band rejection, narrow frequency notches are achieved, which are in good agreement with the simulated results. This technique is suitable for designing wideband antenna with multiple frequency notches or for creating multiband antennas.
