FIG. 1.

Drawing of periodic array of fractal metallic patch elements with primary and secondary structures highlighted on successive elements: (a) fractal cross-dipole elements with interelement spacing of , (b) fractal square-patch elements with interelement spacing of . In this letter, the fractal element size and interelement spacing are varied to investigate their role on stopband attenuation and position.

FIG. 2.

Ideal PMM simulations for fractal cross-dipole elements with optimized spacing (solid curve) show two strong stop bands. Ideal simulations for primary and secondary single cross-dipoles (dashed curve and circles) each show a single strong stop band indicating that each stage of the fractal structure causes one stop band.

Comparison of measured (solid curve) and simulated (circles) transmission spectra for fractal cross-dipole elements with optimized interelement spacing of . Measured primary and secondary stop bands have attenuation of 13 and centered at 44 and , respectively. For reference, MDPCs of the same geometry fabricated using a single -thick layer of silver as the metal patch elements exhibited a response that is nearly identical to those fabricated using aluminum (shown here). The PMM model includes the effects of metallic and dielectric loss.

Measured transmission spectrum of design 1 of the fractal square patch (solid curve) agrees well with the model prediction (circles curve) and contains two strong stop bands at the same positions as those in the fractal cross-dipole case. Design 2 of the fractal square patch (dashed curve) demonstrates that the position of one stop band can be changed relative to the other by adjusting the element geometry and interelement spacing.
