In this paper a novel monopole circular fractal disk is analyzed in details. The antenna is mounted on a FR4 substrate having a dimension of 30 × 35 mm2. A 50 Ω impedance matched microstrip line is used as feeding mechanism for the antenna. The antenna exhibits stable radiation patterns and has a bandwidth of 9.64 GHz. A U-shaped slot having appropriate dimensions is etched from the patch in order to make the antenna compatible for Bluetooth applications. In the later section, different types of Frequency Selective Structures (FSS) are introduced for enhancing the gain of the antenna. A gain of 8.94 dB is observed with the introduction of slot type FSS structures beneath the ground plane. All the analysis of the antenna is done in HFSS 2013. © Springer India 2016.
