Abstract

In this paper, a printed split ring resonator (SRR) loaded log-periodic Koch dipole antenna (SLPKDA) is proposed. Koch-shaped dipoles when being loaded with split ring resonator (SRR) yielded a compact antenna, still preserving the radiation properties of log-periodic dipole antenna (LPDA). Measurement results show that the proposed antenna has a wide bandwidth, good impedance match and gain of 4 dBi over the band of frequencies from 0.9 GHz to 2.5 GHz. Both vertical and horizontal dimension reductions are achieved by loading Koch dipoles with SRR.
