Abstract

In this paper, a novel monopole antenna based on a special type of fiber is fabricated and measured around the 2.4 GHz frequency band. The measured return loss and radiation pattern are compared with those of a conventional monopole antenna made by copper wires. This novel concept of device based on fiber is a good candidate for wireless body area networks for its ease of flexible-antenna formation and potential for on-body proximity sensing.
