Abstract

In this paper a novel hexagonal-circular Fractal antenna is proposed for wideband applications. The proposed antenna is made of iterations of a circular slot inside a hexagonal metallic patch with a transmission line and is fabricated on low cost epoxy matrix reinforced woven glass material. Measurement shows that with a dimension of 0.36Λ0×0.36Λ 0×0.0071Λ 0 (where Λ 0 is the lower edge frequency of the operating band), the proposed antenna achieves a wide impedance bandwidth ranging from 1.34 GHz to 3.44 GHz (88%). The proposed antenna also achieves high gain and exhibits a stable radiation pattern which makes it suitable for many wireless communications such as DCS-1800, PCS-1900, IMT-2000/UMTS, ISM (including WLAN), Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
