A novel dielectric resonator antenna (DRA) is proposed for ultrawideband (UWB) applications, where a simple rectangular dielectric resonator is excited by a bevel-shaped patch connected to a coplanar waveguide (CPW) feeding line. It is found that the bandwidth of the resonant modes can be expanded by using a CPW-fed ground and bevel-shaped patch, and thus a UWB performance can be achieved. Experimental and numerical results were carried out, showing a good agreement. The measured results demonstrate that the proposed DRA achieves an impedance bandwidth more than 3:1, covering the frequency range from 3.1 to 10.6 GHz, which is suitable for UWB applications. Furthermore, to minimise the potential interferences between the UWB system and narrowband systems, such as world interpretability for microwave access and WLAN, UWB DRAs with single band-notched and dual band-notched characteristics were designed, fabricated and measured. The measurement results show good performances in terms of VSWR, antenna gain and radiation pattern. With these features, the proposed antennas are expected to be good candidates in various UWB systems.
