This paper offered the design of Vivaldi Tapered Slot Antenna(TSA) for the Ultra Band Applications using RT Duroid Substrate with relative permittivity of 2.2. The Vivaldi antenna has several applications like WLAN, air bone applications, Ultra wide band applications etc. The minimum and maximum frequency used are 2Ghz and 11Ghz respectively. It improves the Reflection coefficient, gain, directivity, bandwidth of the antenna. In this paper, the conventional antenna is modified by adding Square Slot in the Tapered Vivaldi Antenna. This proposed antenna had been designed and simulated using Comsol Multiphysics software.
