A printed semi-elliptic monopole slot antenna for use in ultrawideband (UWB) communication systems is presented. The antenna features a coplanar waveguide signal strip terminated with a semi-elliptic stub and a modified ground plane to achieve wide bandwidth from 2.85-20 GHz. An exhaustive study of the radiation characteristics of this antenna in the frequency and time domains are presented. Design equations are derived and experimentally validated. Transient analysis indicates linear phase response and minimum dispersion to the transmitted pulse. The proposed radiator is omnidirectional with appreciable gain throughout the band.
