Fractal Antenna Geometry

Refer Fractal antenna basics>> for more information on this type of antenna.

Fractal Antenna advantages

Following points summarize Fractal Antenna advantages:
➨Better matching of input impedance
➨One antenna is sufficient to take care of multiple bands both narrowband and wideband.
➨It provides consistent performance over huge frequency range. Hence fractal antenna is considered to be frequency independent.
➨There will be reduced mutual coupling in array antennas made using fractal geometrical approach.

Fractal Antenna disadvantages

Following points summarize Fractal Antenna disadvantages:
➨Complexity involved in the design and manufacturing process.
➨Numerical limitations
➨Gain Loss
➨After few iterations in the fractal antenna design simulation benefits of this technology based approach will diminish.
