The feed point is located between the two closest ends of the spiral arms. The radiation pattern is of the cos(θ) type, having poor directivity. Some applications require a unidirectional pattern. This can be achieved by mounting the arms of the spiral on a cone (Dyson, 1959). The principal disadvantage of this type of antenna is the feed, which must be balanced over the whole of the band. Typically, a coaxial cable is used, which is an unbalanced line. It is therefore necessary to use a wideband balun.

Instead of a flat disk, a wide-angle (θk = 70◦ ) metal cone is used. This gives excellent broadband matching of 100:1 and acceptable omnidirectionality in the radiation pattern over the whole of the band. Fig. 4. Discone antenna parameters.

Bow-tie antenna. 2. 2D biconical antennas This family of antennas is based on the biconical antenna described above. One example inspired by this, although not frequency-independent, is the diamond antenna which is very popular in UWB systems.

In this way, bandwidths of 8:1 have been obtained (Chen and Chia, 2000b). However, one of the monopoles must be considerably longer than the other in order to prevent any frequencies being filtered out. 2. Use of a short-circuit pin Another design technique for planar monopoles consists in using short-circuit pins in the areas with high current density (see Fig. 19). In addition to providing greater bandwidth, this is also useful for making the antenna more compact. Bandwidth September 7, 2010 15:47 9in x 6in b966-ch03 Classification of UWB Antennas Fig.
