Abstract

The design of low profile Koch fractal (KF) antenna is proposed for broadband public safety applications. The radiating element of the proposed antenna is constructed by engraving KF geometry. Square complementary split ring resonator (SCSRR) is loaded in the ground plane for achieving dual band operation. The proposed SCSRR loaded KF antenna is fabricated by using flexible Poly vinyl chloride material. Furthermore, the experimental validations of the antenna parameters are carried out with the help of an anechoic chamber that is associated with vector network analyser. Results show that the proposed KF antenna operates at the frequencies of 4914 MHz and 5407 MHz. The achieved bandwidths are 382 MHz for the first band and 402 MHz for the second band respectively. The footprint of the antenna is 20 × 20 × 0.8 mm3 and the designed antenna can support broadband public safety and WLAN applications.
