Leading Researchers Corroborate Science of Fractal Antennas

BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)—December 18, 2002--Fractal Antenna Systems, Inc. reports a big step in efforts to grow market acceptance of its fractal antenna and electronic technology: acceptance of the science of fractal antennas.

Researchers at the University of California at Los Angeles, as reported recently by UCLA publications, professional society publications, and the trade press, have described how fractal antennas are an exciting new branch of antenna science and engineering, taking a seasoned field in a new direction. 

 Fractals are geometric shapes that repeat over a variety of scales and have the property of ‘self similarity’. Dr. Nathan Cohen, a physicist, radio astronomer, and retired Boston University professor discovered in 1988 that fractals possess useful antenna element characteristics.  Cohen is the Chief Technology Officer of Fractal Antenna Systems, Inc.

The UCLA efforts are headed by Professor Yahya Rahmat-Samii, a well known leader in the field of antennas.  As described by the UCLA researchers, their work points out the validity of fractal antennas as valuable means of making smaller, multiband antenna element, and tighter packed, versatile arrays. Such findings were first reported starting in 1995 by Fractal Antenna System’s scientists.

Remarks firm CTO Nathan Cohen: “The nice thing about the UCLA group is that they are impartial and not associated with us in any way. They did not seek, nor did we request, any endorsement of the science. We now are, happily, past that point of acceptance of the science, which has been the over-riding issue in establishing credibility for our disruptive technology. 

David Moschella, CEO of the firm, notes that: “Our publications stand as the landmark ones in fractal antennas, and our patents establish clear ownership. We are happy to recognize and applaud efforts of others who come to the same or similar conclusions to our work published over the last 8 years.”

Moschella further noted that the firm has assembled a team of well known scientists to act as a scientific advisory group, and to help the antenna community as a whole become better aware on the state-of-the-art of the science of fractal antennas. 

DISCLAIMER: Fractal Antenna Systems, Inc. presents the above statements as factually accurate. We welcome the opportunity to correct any of the above statements if they are demonstrated as false. No claim is made nor implied for the endorsement of the property and products of Fractal Antenna Systems, Inc. by the State of California or its employees.
