Fractal antenna engineering concepts have been successfully combined with genetic algorithms to develop a powerful design optimization tool. The genetic optimization approach developed can simultaneously optimize the geometry of a fractal antenna, locations of loads, component values of loads, and projected length of the fractal antenna. The results suggest that a 30-55% size reduction can be achieved by optimizing the fractalization and loading of a given antenna. The knowledge gained as a result of this study is directly applicable to the design of miniature fractal antennas.
