Abstract

While limited in dimensions, the shape of small ultra wideband (UWB) antennas can
significantly impact on the required gain pattern stablity and the inherent impulse spreading
throughout the bandwidth. The comparative gain performance of a square monopole and two
Bézier-spline shaped monopoles (optimised for low insertion losses on small groundplanes)
as portable UWB device antennas solutions are reported. By measuring the transmission
group delay for the three geometries in paired combinations, the time-domain spreading due
to each individual antenna is solved numerically with a system of equations.
