Through an integration of wireless communication and sensing technologies, the concept of a body sensor network (BSN) was initially proposed in the early decade with the aim to provide an essential technology for wearable, ambulatory, and pervasive health monitoring for elderly people and chronic patients. It has become a hot research area due to big(More)
Due to the growing implications of energy costs and carbon footprints, the need to adopt inexpensive, green energy harvesting strategies are of paramount importance for the long-term conservation of the environment and the global economy. To address this, the feasibility of harvesting low power density ambient RF energy simultaneously from multiple sources(More)
Recently introduced passive wireless strain sensors based on microstrip patch antennas have shown great potential for reliable health and usage monitoring in aerospace and civil industries. However, the wireless interrogation range of these sensors is limited to few centimeters, which restricts their practical application. This paper presents an(More)

— This paper presents the microwave properties of barium strontium titanate (BST) thin films on r-plane sapphire substrates. A series of films with thickness 25 – 400 nm was prepared by pulsed laser deposition (PLD). Microwave properties of the films, including capacitance tunability and loss tangent, were extracted by patterning interdigitated capacitors(More)
—Recent years have seen the advent of new types of automotive antennas, such as blade or 'shark-fin' antennas and conformal planar roof mounted antennas. In many cases it is desirable to paint these antennas to improve the appearance of the vehicle. In this communication we present an investigation of the effect that both metallic and non-metallic two-pack(More)
