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.
