The Fractal Advantage

Do Fractals Work? Show Me They are Better!

Fractal Antenna Systems,Inc. (“FRACTAL”) uses fractal geometry in antennas and electronics because it works; works well; and allows us to pose a value proposition to our customers that is uniquely advantageous. Fractal geometry allows us, with our proprietary patents and unique experience as pioneers and technology advancers, to have a special and incredibly versatile tool that makes smaller, wider band/multiband, better performing antennas and electronics. That comprises research, development, and application in basic electronics fields of antennas, metamaterials, and filters, among others. In many cases our technology is enabling, allowing new uses that could not be done practically before.

Almost two thousand  research publications, over 15 years, have detailed fractals in antennas and electronics, and there is a growing, exciting , and large body of researchers and students—in the thousands-- detailing these advantages of fractals, from all continents save Antarctica. Although the basics have been reported by our FRACTAL scientists from publications dating to 1995, it is humbling and important to have these totally independent corroborations, on technology we own and offer to our customers. Here, we summarize more than a dozen cases (in installments), all since 2003, that clearly and independently indicate that fractals do have advantages over other approaches, in antennas and electronics.

At this point there are so many examples, all documented by research, of the ‘fractal advantage’, that we not only give a few examples, below, but invite you to go look for yourself.

DISCLAIMER: These researchers have independently re-discovered the advantage of fractals , that is protected and is solely offered in the US and other countries through our patented technology. Fractal Antenna Systems (FRACTAL) neither collaborated with nor was aware of these research programs and these publication are not to be construed as an endorsement by FRACTAL of these research projects, nor the endorsement of FRACTAL or its products by the researchers institutions, nor publications. What we claim is what they say: fractals work better.
