A compact antenna for UWB communication systems has been realized by employing a quasi-selfcomplementary structure together with a triangular notch on microstrip feed line in this paper. The optimal design of this type of antenna can offer an ultra wide return loss bandwidth with reasonable radiation properties. It features a quite small physical dimension of 16 mm x 25 mm, corresponding to an electrically size of 0.24 λ. A good agreement is achieved between the simulated and the measured antenna characteristics. The major parameters that influence the performance of the antenna are investigated numerically to gain an insight into the antenna operation. Time domain performance of the antenna is also examined in order to assess its suitability for impulse radio applications.
