A new compact two-segments dielectric resonator antenna (TSDR) for ultrawideband (UWB) application is presented and studied. The design consists of a thin monopole printed antenna loaded with two dielectric resonators with different dielectric constant. By applying a combination of U-shaped feedline and modified TSDR, proper radiation characteristics are achieved. The proposed antenna provides an ultrawide impedance bandwidth, high radiation efficiency, and compact antenna with an overall size of 18 × 36 × 11 mm . From the measurement results, it is found that the realized dielectric resonator antenna with good radiation characteristics provides an ultrawide bandwidth of about 110%, covering a range from 3.14 to 10.9 GHz, which covers UWB application.
