A compact coplanar waveguide (CPW) monopole antenna is presented, comprising a fractal radiating patch in which a folded T-shaped element (FTSE) is embedded. The impedance match of the antenna is determined by the number of fractal unit cells, and the FTSE provides the necessary band-notch functionality. The filtering property can be tuned finely by controlling of length of FTSE. Inclusion of a pair of rectangular notches in the ground plane is shown to extend the antenna's impedance bandwidth for ultrawideband (UWB) performance. The antenna's parameters were investigated to fully understand their affect on the antenna. Salient parameters obtained from this analysis enabled the optimization of the antenna's overall characteristics. Experimental and simulation results demonstrate that the antenna exhibits the desired VSWR level and radiation patterns across the entire UWB frequency range. The measured results showed the antenna operates over a frequency band between 2.94–11.17 GHz with fractional bandwidth of 117% for {\rm VSWR} \leq 2 , except at the notch band between 3.3–4.2 GHz. The antenna has dimensions of 14 ,\times, 18 ,\times , 1 mm ^{3} .
