Ultra-wideband (UWB) technology appears to be a promising solution for future short-range high-speed indoor wireless personal area networks (WPAN) and wireless body area networks (WBAN) as well as for microwave imaging of abnormal tissues etc. The UWB wireless systems cover a very wide spectrum of frequencies that ranges from 3.1 to 10.6 GHz. As antennas are the key components of any UWB wireless system, it is essential that they have ultra-wideband performance particularly with respect to impedance bandwidth (< -10 dB), omni radiational characteristics and linear phase response.
