The authors report/ demonstrate a superior multiband antenna for WLAN, WiMax, and other bands
by using a Minkowski fractal. Excellent performance at these bands is noted, as is superior results
compared to a conventional square.
- FRACTAL ADVANTAGE: Simple and inexpensive multiband option with improved
performance compared to a conventional (square) approach.
- APPLICATION: WLAN, WLAN, UWB other wideband embedded needs
- FRACTAL DESIGN: Minkowskii
- PATENTS AND PRIORITY DATE: This paper corroborates advantages of the Minkowski
approach first noted by inventor Cohen an detailed in FRACTAL patents 6,452,553;
7,256,751; and 6,127,977 dated to 1995 and 1997 filings. Almost a 20 year wait for this
corroboration What took you so long?
