Abstract: There are number of methods that can be used to reduce the size of the antenna especially when it is too be used at lower operating frequencies. Fractal is one of the ways which can be used to miniaturize antennas due to their space filling ability. It helps in fitting large electrical lengths into small volume. In this paper the the radiation pattern of 1X4 array of micro-strip patch antenna over fractal geometry can be observed.
