Abstract:

—The crowding of wireless band has necessitated the development of multiband and wideband wireless antennas. Because of the self similar characteristics, fractal concepts have emerged as a design methodology for compact multiband antennas. A Koch-like fractal curve is proposed to transform ultra-wideband (UWB) bow-tie into so called Koch-like sided fractal bow-tie dipole. A small isosceles triangle is cut off from center of each side of the initial isosceles triangle, then the procedure iterates along the sides like Koch curve does, forming the Koch-like fractal bow-tie geometry, used for multiband applications. ADS software is used to design the proposed antennna. It has covers the applications like GSM, wireless band and other wireless communications.
