In this paper we investigate the effect of replacing the ordinary rectangular microstrip patches in a linear antenna array with fractal patch elements. It is shown that using fractal patches substantially decreases the Mutual Coupling between elements. The effects of fractal type, spacing between elements, feed point location and number of parasitic elements on array performance has been studied.
