Corroborate Science of Fractal Antennas
BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)—December 18,
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.
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
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.
Fractal Antenna Systems, Inc. presents the above statements as
factually accurate. We welcome the opportunity to correct any
