Fractal antennas are found to be
advantageous because of their small size and multiband functionality. This
paper proposes a composite miniaturized fractal antenna as a combination of
Minkowski and Koch curves. The structure of the proposed antenna is the result
of the modifications made with the basic fractal square and triangular curves.
The design and simulation have been performed using a full-wave 3-dimensional
electromagnetic simulator. The antenna can be used for most handheld devices
and thus finds wide applications in the field of wireless and mobile communication.
