Based on the requirement of the TD-LTE standard of the fourth generation mobile communication,a new Cantor-Hilbert composite fractal antenna which combines Cantor fractal structure and Hilbert fractal structure in a creative way is designed.A sample of this antenna has been tested after simulation analyses,and the influence of the performance of this antenna has been tested by changing the dielectric substrate parameter in detail.Results of simulation and test indicate that the antenna’s return loss minimum value is -28.26 dB,the antenna’s absolute working bandwidth is 0.438 GHz,the antenna’s relative working bandwidth is 17.09% and the antenna exhibit omni directional radiation characteristics.This antenna can completely cover the TD-LTE standard communication frequency band of the fourth generation mobile communication,and can enjoy advantages of small size,low return losses and wide working bandwidths.Finally,this antenna faces a broad application prospect.
