In this paper, CPW-Fed ultra wideband (UWB) planar monopole antenna (PMA) loaded by double elliptical split ring resonators (ESRRs) for double band-notch characteristics is introduced and examined. Two different ESRRs with different dimensions are printed in the antenna backside to notch two different frequencies. The ESRRs are also rotated and the corresponding return loss effect is examined. Different notch frequencies can be obtained by varying the ESRRs, dimensions. Two single SRRs are used

Two notch frequencies at 5.2 GHz and 6.9 GHz has been obtained to notch WLAN and C-band wireless applications, respectively. A directive radiation pattern in E-plane and omnidirectional radiation patterns in the H-plane could be observed. Also the gain is suppressed in the notch frequencies. The group delay is nearly stable in the UWB frequency range, except at the notch frequencies, which is distorted sharply. So, the proposed antenna is a good candidate for the modern UWB systems. Finite element method FEM and finite integration technique FIT are used to simulate the proposed structures through the usage of Ansys HFSS and CST MWS. Very good agreement between both results has been obtained.
