A Tunable Spherical Cap Microfluidic Electrically Small Antenna
2013 (English)In: Small, ISSN 1613-6810, Vol. 9, no 19, 3230-3234 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
We present a novel microfluidic three-dimensional elec- trically small antenna (ESA). It is easy to construct simply by pneumatically inflating a planar stretchable liquid alloy microfluidic antenna into a spherical cap. Its center frequency is tuned when it is inflated; demonstrating combined high efficiency and a wide tunable frequency range around its hemispherical shape.
