|Title:||Radiation Pattern of an UWB Wearable Antenna: A Preliminary Study|
|Published:||September 24, 2012|
|Abstract:||Inhomogeneity of the propagation medium in body area networks could have a great impact on the sensor node‰s antenna characteristics. This in turn could affect the quality of the communication links unless the impact of the human body has been properly considered during the design phase of the antenna. In this paper, we investigate the impact of the antenna‰s placement and its distance from the body surface on its radiation pattern. It is shown that the antenna placement could affect the in-body radiation pattern of the antenna.|
