Abstract:
This paper presents a novel miniaturized dual-band fractal antenna for WLAN/WiMAX applications. The miniaturization of the proposed antenna is achieved by inserting, in the center ground of the antenna, square slots to excite two resonant modes simultaneously, leading to dual-band operation. The novelty of the proposed antenna is miniaturized size and ability to support multiband operations, which can be integrated in many electronic applications and wireless communication. This antenna has a compact size of only 25×25 mm2 and fed by a 50 Ω-microstrip feed line. To validate the design approach, an experimental prototype is fabricated and measured. The simulation and measurement results show that the antenna provides dual-band operation at 2.4 and 3.75 GHz with omnidirectional radiation pattern.
