In this paper, we present the design of a new ultra-wideband (UWB) frequency selective surface (FSS) based antenna, by using a wide stop-band FSS as a backing reflector for an UWB monopole antenna. A new single layer FSS, with UWB stop-band response and a reflection phase varies linearly with frequency, is firstly designed and thereafter, it is integrated with an UWB electric monopole. The studies of the behavior of the proposed antenna reveal that a unidirectional radiation with a quasi-constant gain of an average of 9dBi and a compact profile of λ/10 are achieved. The features of the proposed UWB FSS and its based antenna make them good candidates for integration with low profile broadband printed circuits and UWB applications.
