Study of Patch Antennas with Koch Curve Form Slots

D. A. B. Fonseca, F. Pareira, U. R. C. Vitor


This work proposes the study of patch antennas with fractal slots. Initially, a 2.4 GHz microstrip antenna is designed. Then, the slots in the Koch fractals format are inserted with the iteration 0, 1 and 2. Similarly, it is expected that the antenna can be subjected to various functions in other applications. Simulations using CST STUDIO SUITE Student Editon software are shown, in addition to antenna measurements using the Network Analyzer
