Abstract

In this paper, a novel log-periodic cantor dipole antenna(LPCDA), which is composed of the cantor-dipole elements instead of the existing dipole elements, is proposed. The proposed antenna makes possible the antenna miniaturization by using the cantor-dipole elements. To investigate the reliability of the proposed antenna, LPCDA is designed and analyzed at $1{\sim}4GHz$ band and compared with LPDA(Log-Periodic Dipole Antenna) characteristics. It is shown that although the elements of LPCDA are 13.3% shorter than LPDA, the gain increases about 2dB and VSWR is less than 2 in at the upper band.
