The optimum design of an ultra-wideband (UWB) antenna mounted over an infinite ground plain was presented. The Green's function method (GFM) was used to model arbitrarily the shaped boundaries close to the antenna. A genetic algorithm was used as the optimization procedure and finite difference time domain (FDTD) analysis as the mathematical model for simulation of the transmitted energies. A response with small trailing oscillations was observed and use of the techniques permitted efficient optimization of electromagnetic problems.
