dc.description.abstract In UWB system design and optimization, antennas are usually represented by a single transfer function relating the input voltage to the radiated electric field in the free space. However, the transfer function of planar ultra-wideband antennas depends on not only frequency but also direction. In this paper we present a strategy that helps the UWB system designer to select the best transfer function (and the best reference direction) for the antenna. In the process we demonstrate that good pattern stability of a UWB antenna within a particular band is advantageous to ease the complexities in the selection of the transfer function. We have thus emphasized the importance of having stable patterns for UWB antennas. Pulse optimization algorithms that meet FCC spectrum requirements are presented as examples. en_AU
