Abstract

Miniaturized monopole and dipole antenna designs are reported with performances optimized for Ultra Wideband pulsed radio applications. The geometries are created using Bézier spline shapes, which have been refined with a genetic algorithm to simultaneously take account of both frequency- and time-domain criteria. Time-domain measurements of ultra wideband antennas that exhibit uniformly distributed energy across the full 3.1 - 10.6 GHz mask are reported for the first time and validate a new approach to minimization of pulse dispersion effects in the antenna designs.
