A novel single-layer dual band-notched printed circle-like slot antenna for ultrawideband (UWB) applications is presented. The proposed antenna comprises a circle-like slot, a trident-shaped feed line, and two nested C-shaped stubs. By using a trident-shaped feed line, much wider impedance bandwidth is obtained. Due to inserting a pair of nested C-shaped stubs on the back surface of the substrate, two frequency band-notches of 5.1-6.2 (WLAN) and 3-3.8 GHz (WiMAX) are achieved. The nested stubs are connected to the tuning stub using two cylindrical via pins. The designed antenna has a total size of 26 × 30 mm2 and operates over the frequency band between 2.5 and 25 GHz. Throughout this letter, experimental results of the impedance bandwidth, gain, and radiation patterns are compared and discussed .
