  • In this paper, optically transparent ultra-wideband (UWB) monopole antennas in S-band and Cband are presented, compared and discussed. Three transparent UWB antennas elaborated from the AgGL (Silver Grid Layer) material with various levels of transparency (54.5%, 73.4% and 80.3%) and of sheet resistances 0.018›/sq, 0.022›/sq and 0.052›/sq, respectively are tested. The radiofrequency measurements show performances very close to those of a light re∞ecting reference antenna made of a continuous… CONTINUE READING
