A new approach is proposed to reject certain bands within the passband of an ultra-wideband planar monopole antenna. The proposed approach that utilizes a mushroom-type electromagnetic-bandgap (EBG) structure is proven to be an effective way for band-notched designs. The approach has many advantages, such as notch-frequency tunability, notch-band width controllable capacity, efficient dual-notch design, and stable radiation patterns. Several design examples using conventional mushroom-type EBG and edge-located vias mushroom-type EBG are presented. The examples exhibit good bandstop characteristics to reject the wireless local-area network interference bands (5.2- and 5.8-GHz bands). Besides, the causes that lead to the discrepancies between the simulations and measurements are discussed.
