Abstract:
New fractal geometry for microstrip antennas is presented in this paper. This fractal structure is implemented on hexagonal and several iteration is applied on initial shape. This antenna has lowprofile, lightweight and is easy to be fabricated and has successfully demonstrated multiband and broadband characteristics. The simulated results showthat proposed antenna has very good performance in impedance bandwidth and radiation pattern.
