In this study, we present a low-profile dual-spectrum split-ring monopole that operates at industrial, scientific and medical (ISM) (2.45 GHz) band and ultrawideband (UWB) spectrum (3.1-10.6 GHz). We optimised the design for dual-band operations by using circular split-ring radiators. The coupling between both rings drives the structure to achieve quasi-resonance frequencies in the UWB spectrum. A small stub combines the two radiators and both behave as a single element that enables the antenna to resonate at ISM band 2.45 GHz. The antenna achieves the desired characteristics in terms of good impedance matching, radiation properties as well as other physical and practical requirements such as compact geometry, planar profile and easy fabrication. The very good agreement between the simulated and measured results show that the proposed antenna has the potential for dual-band application.
