A novel compact wearable antenna printed on paper is presented. The antenna comprises a non-resonant coplanar monopole antenna placed on a miniaturized AMC (total size of 0.14 λ0 x 0.14 λ0 x 0.01 λ0 at 700 MHz). The manufacturing process only requires a commercial desktop inkjet printer and conductive nano-ink. The effectiveness of the proposed configuration (monopole above AMC) with respect to the unloaded monopole or to the monopole above a metallic ground plane is proved with on-body measurements in the sub-GHz band.

Abstract

A novel compact wearable antenna printed on paper is presented. The antenna comprises a non-resonant coplanar monopole antenna placed on a miniaturized AMC (total size of 0.14 λ0 x 0.14 λ0 x 0.01 λ0 at 700 MHz). The manufacturing process only requires a commercial desktop inkjet printer and conductive nano-ink. The effectiveness of the proposed configuration (monopole above AMC) with respect to the unloaded monopole or to the monopole above a metallic ground plane is proved with on-body measurements in the sub-GHz band.
