Design of Self-Similarity Multi-Fractal Antenna for WiMAX Application


A novel multifractal self-similarity microstrip-fed monopole fractal antenna is designed. Self-similarity property fractal is implemented in the conventional rectangular patch. As a result, broad bandwidth and resonance frequencies are obtained. The proposed multifractal antenna has a compact size of 19.8*27.8 mm and the operating frequency band of the antenna is 3.4 GHz to 3.6 GHz. The proposed multi-fracal antenna is printed on the FR5 dielectric material with 1.6 mm thickness. It is observed that incremental iterations generate new resonant frequencies. The results shows that the proposed design creates monopole antenna malleable in order to controlling bandwidth and radiation characteristics.
