The Genetic Algorithm technique has been used to optimise the design of small folded wire antennas. The genetic optimiser located wires on a predefined grid to create well matched devices operating at single or multiple bands. The chromosome structure and the fitness function employed are described. The GA approach also enabled broadband radiators and electrically small convoluted geometries to be designed.
