Abstract

The working principles of coplanar-waveguide (CPW) -fed, ultra-wideband (UWB) printed antennas are investigated. The behavior of the current distributions at different frequencies are examined. The modifications in the current distributions when the phase of the currents changes lead us to some conclusions on the behavior of UWB antennas.
