Indian researchers have invented what they claim as the world's smallest super compact ultra-wideband (UWB) planar antenna.

Academician Professor Srikanta Pal from the Birla Institute of Technology, Mesra, and his research scholar Mrinmoy Chakraborty have developed the antenna that can find application in homes and military among others, reported Press Trust of India.

The antenna is smallest at 14mmx11mm, with much more than a 10:1 bandwidth.

According to the researchers, the UWB technology brings mobility of wireless communications with high data rates. "The technology was designed for short range, wireless personal area networks (WPANs), with the objective of freeing people from wires."

The antenna, which is cheap, has been developed by using fibre reinforced plastics and the fabrication process is simple wet chemical etching method, said the researchers.

The antenna has been developed with an aim to reduce the size so that it can be pasted on any curved surface.
