A novel design of fractal dipole antenna has been presented for RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) tag applications, which is based on the fractal theory. The antenna consists of two third iteration triangle fractal arms, and has been designed to work at 900 MHz (GSM) and 2.4 GHz (ISM), and its size is 89 mm×29 mm×1.6 mm. The simulated results for various characteristics of the antenna have been shown using finite element technique based commercial software ANSOFT HFSS. The simulated and measured impedance results are in good agreement.
