Analysis of Micro S Trip Fractal Arrays

T. Durga Prasad, K. Karuna Kumari, K.V. Satya Kumar, B. Kanthamma, M. Ramesh


Micro strip antennas are used not only as single
element but are very popular in arrays. Arrays are very versatile and are used to synthesize a required pattern that cannot be achieved with a single element. In addition they are used to scan the beam of an antenna system, increase the directivity, and perform various other functions which would be difficult with any one single element. Micro strip Arrays can be analyzed using the above theory of uniform linear arrays.
In this paper we discussed different microstrip arrays named
cantor linear array antenna, sierpenski gasket antenna and different shapes of arrays, after that here we are observing which type of fractal array producing best and directivity.
