ABSTRACT
The article focuses on a microwave antenna which was designed with coplanar-avenged (CPW) feed that offers radiation with enough gain to suit ultrawideband (UWB) communications applications. By employing a three-layer frequency-selective surface (FSS), the antenna can get more gain, enhancing the gain by 4 to 5 dB while having same wide impedance bandwidth.
