Abstract
In this paper, new fractal curves are designed, simulated, and implemented for passive UHF RFID application. 5-, 6-, 7-, and 8-sides polygon fractal loops are proposed and implemented in this work based on the 2nd iteration. It is shown that increasing the number of sides can improve the performance and minimize the size of the fractal antenna. The designed fractal loop antennas have been compared with other fractal loop antennas published previously, and the recent antennas show a better performance. The designed antennas are fabricated using PCB technology, and the antenna parameters are measured experimentally and compared to CST simulations. There is an acceptable agreement between the simulated and measured results. The effect of different materials on antenna performance is also studied.
