A miniaturized ultra-wideband (UWB) antenna based on Sierpinski square slots is reported. The antenna has a compact dimension of only 0:32λl × 0:32λl (28 ×28mm2), at a lower frequency of 3.4 GHz. Antenna miniaturization is achieved by etching Sierpinski square slots in the radiating decagonal shaped monopole, and UWB operations are accomplished by utilizing double truncations in the ground plane. The designed antenna has a fractional bandwidth of about 127.3% (3.41-15.37 GHz) in simulation and about 124.7% (3.50-15.1 GHz) in measurement. The time domain characteristics of the designed antenna are discussed in detail. Good radiation characteristics and impedance matching are exhibited by the designed fractal antenna in the entire UWB range.
