Abstract

In this paper, a novel circular-hexagonal Fractal antenna is investigated for super wide band applications. The proposed antenna is made of iterations of a hexagonal slot inside a circular metallic patch with a transmission line. A partial ground plane and asymmetrical patch toward the substrate are used for designing the antenna to achieve a super wide bandwidth ranging from 2.18GHz to 44.5GHz with a bandwidth ratio of 20.4: 1. The impedance bandwidth and gain of the proposed antenna are much better than the recently reported super wideband antennas which make it appropriate for many wireless communications systems such as ISM, Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, WLAN and UWB. Details of the proposed antenna design are presented and discussed.
