Design and Analysis of Hexagonal Fractal Antenna for UWB Application
In modern telecommunication systems require antennas with smaller dimension and wider bandwidth than conventional ones. The microstrip antenna consists of a very thin metallic patch placed a small fraction of a wavelength above a ground plane. The strip and ground plane are separated by a dielectric substrate. The patch shapes such as the square, rectangular, circular, triangular, semicircular, annular ring and elliptical shapes are used. A fractal antenna having the shape of hexagonal for UWB application is designed. The frequency band is considered from 3 to 10.6GHz.
