Polymeric ferrite-loaded antennas for on-body communications
2009 (English)In: Microwave and Optical technology Letters, Vol. 51, no 11Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Wearable antennas are integral part of body area networks (BANs). Antenna design for BAN applications is a challenging task since the antennas have to be small, efficient, and must not be affected by the wearer's body. This makes isolation of antenna a matter of importance. Ferrites form an opaque media for microwave at the 2.4-GHz ISM band and hence it could be used for the isolation of antenna from surroundings. Thin polymeric ferrite sheets are used to reduce body influence in BAN perspective.
