© 2017 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. In this article, a novel structure of a planar monopole antenna for Super Wide-band applications is proposed. The structure is based on the complementary Sierpinski triangle surrounded by two semi-circular sectors. The ground plane of the antenna has been modified including some slots to improve the operating bandwidth and coupling. The simulated and experimental results show that the antenna achieves a ratio impedance bandwidth >15:1 (from 1.68 to 26 GHz) for S11 ≤ −10dB. © 2017 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
