A fractal monopole antenna is proposed for the application in the UWB frequency range, which is designed by the combination of two fractal geometries. The first iterations of Giusepe Peano fractal are applied on the edges of a square patch, and a Sierpinski Carpet fractal is formed on its surface. The feed circuit is a microstrip line with a matching section over a semi-elliptical ground plane. The presented antenna has an omnidirectional radiation pattern, a good gain, and high efficiency. The fabrication and measurement data attest to the satisfaction of the design specifications.
