Fractal Antennas

Sierpinski gasket, Koch dipole

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.
