hybrid fractal shape planar monopole antenna covering multiple wireless communication
bands is presented for multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) implementation for
handheld mobile devices.
The proposed structure is the combination of Minkowski island curve and Koch curve
fractals. It is placed with edge to edge separation of 0.16λ0 at 1.75 GHz. The T-shape
strip is inserted and rectangular slot is etched at top side of ground plane, respectively
to improve the impedance matching and isolation between the antennas.
