The increase of mobile applications requires antennas ever smaller in form factor. In this paper, an effective method is presented for antenna size miniaturization of ultrawideband (UWB) monopole antennas with symmetric structure and perfect magnetic conductor (PMC) plane. Two small antennas are designed for pulsed UWB applications in the 3.1-10.6-GHz band with and without notch behavior in the band. The presented technique is applied to both antennas for an even further 50% area reduction. The performance of the miniaturized antennas is then compared with the main-size structures. Using both simulations and measurements the paper analyzes and demonstrates in detail the effectiveness of the presented technique in the time and frequency domain.
