Abstract

A methodology that allows for the compensation of the coupling effects that is based on optimizing the shape of a miniaturized fractal or stochastic antenna when placed next to a perfect magnetic conductor (PMC) surface is introduced. As such, several case studies are presented that compare the performance of a specific antenna when operating in the vicinity of a PMC ground plane versus a perfect electric conducting (PEC) ground plane. The results of such studies show that in the case of a PMC ground plane, the desired VSWR specifications can be achieved through optimizing the geometries of fractal or stochastic antennas.
