Abstract

This paper presents a novel compact coplanar waveguide (CPW) monopole fractal-shaped antenna using fractal patch composed of hexagons with defected ground plane. Inclusion of a pair of S-shaped slots on the ground plane is used to  extend the antenna impedance bandwidth and to provide multiband operation. The antenna has a compact size of 35×35×1.27 mm3 which is compact. The antenna is designed, fabricated and measured. Good performances in terms of return loss, gain and radiation pattern are obtained in the  operating bands, which makes the proposed antenna a good  candidate for multiband wireless systems. The obtained results show that the antenna operates at Bluetooth,Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMAX), and Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN).
