Abstract: This paper primarily focuses on various fractal geometries and their applications to antenna designs. Several natures inspired and human inspired fractal geometries are presented one by one. Their importance and design procedure are also briefly discussed. The dimensions of such fractal geometries are found using their mathematical modeling. Considering modeling and their corresponding shapes various low profiles, low cost, small size and, light weight antenna designs for various wireless applications are described. The broadband, wideband, and multiband nature of the design due to fractal application are discussed. Finally advantages, disadvantages, major applications, and future scope of such fractal geometries are mentioned.
