Abstract

A printed UWB Vivaldi antenna is presented in this paper. Its geometry is based on a novel spline shape and optimised by an efficient global optimisation algorithm. A U-shaped slot is introduced into the geometry to notch out the 5.1 GHz to 5.8 GHz WLAN band. This can be used to mitigate interference between WLAN and UWB systems.
