Measured S-parameters of the teflon embedded dual-polarized UWB antenna

During the big Ultra-Wideband (UWB) hype beginning with the new millennium the IHE was part of several projects where different aspects of UWB systems have been researched. The main focus of the IHE’s work was on antennas for communication, localization, imaging and even high power transmission. In addition the IHE worked on other UWB aspects like Rotman lenses and complete impulse-based localization systems.
