It has been shown here that the Fourier transform, which can be obtained experimentally, of an evolving fractal can be manipulated to yield the fractal dimension. Although only the Pascal-Sierpinski gaskets have been considered here, because of their generality, it is expected that this technique can be utilized to identify other planar fractals as well.
