Fractal Antennas

Sierpinski gasket and carpet, Koch dipole and snowflake and, Minkowski's Island

Fractal antennas use self similar designs to maximize the length, or increase the perimeter of material that can receive or transmit electromagnetic radiation within a given total surface area or volume. Fractal antennas are printed structures that is they are etched on a dielectric substrate.

The main advantage of fractal antennas are:

  • Reduced space requirement because of the compact size.

  • Higher input resistance because of increase in length or perimeter.
