Microwave energy harvesting has the potential to power low powered electronic micro systems. Here we propose a fractal antenna topology that may be used for the conversion of microwave energy into usable DC power. The design of a broadband antenna that uses fractal approach is investigated. Simulation results demonstrate that improvements may be obtained in bandwidth and gain characteristics of planar antennas by using fractal approach.
