This paper presents the behavior of three iterations of a CoPlanar Waveguide-fed (CPW) CANTOR Set fractal antenna. This kind of antennas allows having an Ultra Wide Band (UWB) behavior and important gains. Also, the setup of slots allows having more lower resonant frequencies and therefore designing miniaturized antennas with good performances.

All the simulations were performed with FEKO 6.3.
