Abstract

In this paper a staircase fractal curve is applied on a microstrip line fed truncated corner square patch antenna to achieve Super Wide Band (SWB) operation. The proposed antenna exhibits an impedance bandwidth from 0.1 GHz to 30 GHz with a ratio impedance bandwidth of 300:1 for S11 ≤ -10 dB. The bandwidth enhancement of the proposed antenna structure due to the fractal curve is shown in a step by step manner. The Bandwidth Dimension Ratio (BDR) of the proposed antenna design is obtained as 496675. Relatively stable omnidirectional radiation pattern and satisfactory value of gain are obtained over the operation band. Time domain analysis has also been performed to check the applicability of the proposed design as SWB antenna.
