Fractal antennas are designed using self-similar shapes to maximize the length or increase the perimeter of a material that can receive or transmit electromagnetic radiation within a given total surface area or volume. Fractal antennas are usually printed structures mounted on a dielectric substrate.
The main advantage of fractal antennas is defined by a reduced space requirement because of their compact size. In addition, they offer higher input resistance because of an increase in the length or perimeter.
Focusing on their attractive features, these antennas seem to be suitable in systems where there is a need to integrate several types of communication techniques in equipment with well-defined constraints for geometric dimensions, parameters and deployment.
The focus of this Special Issue is to continue to advance research on topics relating to the theory, design, implementation and application of fractal antennas. Topics that are invited for submission include (but are not limited to):
- Antennas for new-generation mobile devices;
- Fractal antennas for satellite communication;
- New ways of deploying antennas and antenna systems;
- Antennas for testing and measurement;
- Embedded antennas for IoT devices;
- Wideband communications based on fractal antennas;
- Multiband communications based on fractal antennas;
- New materials used for fractal antenna enhancements;
- Designing and modeling new fractal shapes for antennas.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Fractal and Fractional is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2700 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
