A Compact Dual Band Microstrip Patch Antenna for Bluetooth/WI-MAX Using Koch Fractal
A low profile, dual band (Bluetooth, WiMAX (Worldwide interoperability for Microwave Access) application), planar monopole antenna is presented in this work. Rectangular 'C' shaped slot is cut on the radiating element and rectangular open loop resonators are embedded in the ground section of the antenna structure. Fractal geometry is included to improve the gain of the antenna. Operating frequencies of the antenna are 2.2 - 2.5GHz for Bluetooth (IEEE 802.15.1) and 3.34 - 3.57GHz for WIMAX (IEEE 802.16).
