A novel design of printed sleeve monopole antenna is presented in this paper. Because of using double-sleeve and CPW-fed technique, this antenna has advantages of ultra-wideband (UWB) impedance characteristic, simple structure, easy fabrication and low cost. The details of simulated and experimental results for the proposed design are presented and discussed. This antenna can be designed for UWB wireless communication applications.
