Abstract

Fractals constitute huge family of complex shapes which can be widely seen in nature at diverse scales. Using fractal geometry, fractal dimension as the main characteristic for each shape is defined and calculated. This paper tries to clarify some mathematical aspects which are somewhat vague for an electrical engineer. On the other hand, it explains for a mathematician that how calculation of fractal dimension can be led to improvement in performance of antenna namely increase in wide band which bring us fabrication of super wide band (SWB) fractal antenna. There exist three steps: determining fractal dimension, design equation, and fabrication process.
