In this article, a single-feed, miniaturized, circularly polarized (CP) microstrip patch antenna (MPA) using Koch fractal geometry for RFID applications is presented. The design consists of a probe-fed slotted square-shaped patch with the fractal edge and two pairs of capacitively coupled grounded metal strips. The proposed design methodology is validated by designing two prototypes (Antenna 1 and Antenna 2), which are operating at 2.435 GHz and 5.78 GHz respectively. Both antennas show right-hand circular polarization (RHCP) characteristics with 3 dB axial ratio bandwidth (ARBW) covering 2.433–2.439 GHz and 5.75–5.8 GHz respectively. This design leads to a reduction in the overall size of the antennas, to meet the demands of portable wireless devices.
