Abstract: This paper presents the design of a square monopole with sliced semi-circular ground plane. The proposed antenna exhibits ultra wide band characteristics from 2.2GHz to 11.7GHz. The dimensions of the patch are 20x20mm2 with a microstrip line feed at one of its corners, yields S11 < -10dB, VSWR < 2 when simulated in HFSS 18.0 software. The antenna is fabricated and measured for reflection coefficient, radiation pattern and peak gain.
