In this paper, a novel and compact microstrip-fed printed monopole antenna with a bandnotched characteristic for UWB applications is proposed. To achieve UWB performance, a patch antenna with an octagonal shape is studied first. Then by simply embedding a pair of symmetrical thin L-shaped slots in the ground plane of this proposed antenna, a band rejection in the frequency band of 4.95 to 5.98 GHz is attained. The time-domain performance of this antenna is also studied to ensure that this proposed antenna is applicable to any short-range UWB systems.
