Abstract

Two design examples are considered where these miniature fractal tree antennas are made reconfigurable by the introduction of strategically placed reactive loads or radio frequency (RF) switches. The first design is a fractal dipole antenna that operates at several frequency bands by adding reactive loads in the tree structure. The second design considered is a reconfigurable miniature dipole antenna that achieves a 43% size reduction with respect to its conventional counterpart and has a tunable bandwidth of nearly 70%.
