Abstract

A new design approach of a dual-stub coplanar Vivaldi antenna with integrated filter is presented. The dual-stub excites coupling between a parasitic elliptical element and tapered slots. The dimensions of the parasitic element are studied and optimized for wide beamwidth. The bandpass filter is used for sub-harmonic suppression and pattern shaping.
