A novel fractal rectangular curve microstrip antenna is investigated as an efficient scheme of miniaturization. Based on simulation results the element possesses good size reduction ability without compromising significantly on the antenna's bandwidth and efficiency. The radiation patterns between the conventional quarter wavelength patch and the shorted fractal element are similar, concluding that the latter can be used to replace the former. Moreover, the novel geometry has several degrees of freedom that can be used to either reduce further the size of the antenna or keep the bandwidth to a satisfactory level. The novel geometry was also considered for production of circular polarization and exhibited very good results.
