In this paper, a conformal wideband circularly polarized (CP) antenna is presented for endoscopic capsule application over the 915-MHz Industrial, Scientific, and Medical (902–928 MHz) band. The thickness of the antenna is only 0.2 mm, which can be wrapped inside a capsule’s inner wall. By cutting meandered slots on the patch, using open-end slots on the ground, and utilizing two long arms, the proposed antenna obtains a significant size reduction. In the conformal form, the antenna volume… CONTINUE READING
