A compact triple band notched ultra-wideband (UWB) monopole antenna is presented in this paper. Split Ring Resonator (SRR) structure is exploited in various forms like Complementary Split Ring Resonator (CSRR), Split Ring Resonator Pair (SRRP) and CSRR on Electromagnetic Band Gap (EBG) structure to produce triple band notched characteristics in UWB spectrum. The proposed antenna produces triple band notched functions with integration of all three types of SRR on primary antenna. The parametric analysis of each form of SRR is presented along with their current distribution effects on triple band notched antenna. The proposed antenna prototype is fabricated and measured results are also compared with simulated one to understand the discrepancies. The measured and simulated results are presented to investigate the band notching characteristics of suggested antenna in terms of VSWR and radiation characteristics.
