A compact double-layer Bowtie antenna optimized for medical diagnosis is presented in this paper. This on-body antenna is matched to the human body to allow more energy to be radiated into the human body to obtain stronger reflections for image processing. By using a Bowtie antenna with double layers as well as a folded structure and meandered microstrip lines at the bottom of the antenna, a small size of 30 × 30 mm2 with a size reduction of 40% is achieved, compared to the reference antenna of… CONTINUE READING
