Dispersive Properties of Terminal-Loaded Dipole Antennas in UWB Link

  • Anatoliy O. Boryssenko

A variety of UWB applications require signals with very wide bandwidths or very short pulses that can be severely distorted across channels even for free-space line-ofsight because of antenna dispersion. UWB radiators can play a major role in unavoidable spectral/temporal transformations of signals across channels. These signal variations depend implicitly on the antenna shapes, which stimulates R&D work to use narrowband antennas in UWB regime and/or develop new types of specific broadband antennas.
