Amer Basim Shaalan, Fractal Minkowski Antenna Loaded with Hilbert Curve as Complementary Split Ring Resonator, ILCPA Volume 51, International Letters of Chemistry, Physics and Astronomy (Volume 51)
    Fractal Minkowski patch antenna is proposed. Classical complementary split ring resonator (CSRR) is slotted on the patch. For comparison, fractal Hilbert shape split ring resonator also slotted on the patch. These slots make the patch behaves as a left-handed material in certain frequency band. Minkowski fractal antenna has three resonance frequencies. The complementary split ring resonator and Hilbert ring affects the upper two frequencies and make the antenna resonate at lower frequencies. Lowering the resonance frequencies cause a reduction in antenna size. More reduction of antenna size is obtained when fractal Hilbert is used as complementary split ring resonator. The simulated results have been done by using (HFSS) software, which is based on finite element modeling. The measurement of fabricated antenna shows good agreement with simulation results
