Abstract
Fractal slot structures are widely used to design compact size and multiband printed antennas. In this paper, a printed antenna with fractal based slot structure is presented for use in dual-band wireless applications. The slot structure of the proposed antenna is circle based. The slot structure has been etched in the ground plane of an FR4 substrate with relative dielectric constant of 4.4 and 1.6 mm thickness. On the reverse side a microstrip line has to be printed as a 50 Ω feed. Simulation results of the modeled antenna show that it offers a dual-band resonant behavior with a considerable resonant frequency ratio; covering a wide variety of wireless applications. Modelling and performance evaluation of the resulting antenna are carried out using the commercially available EM simulator HFSS, from Ansoft Corporation. Furthermore, the proposed antenna exhibits good radiation characteristics at the resonant bands.
