A wideband, body contact, directive beam, circularly polarized, single arm, Archimedean spiral antenna for radiometric temperature measurement inside a human body in S-band and an SAR (specific absorption rate) measurement method using a thermal camera are described in this paper. A new approach of designing the spiral antenna based on using the estimated effective permittivity of a multilayered microstrip line to derive the dimensions of the spiral antenna is proposed. The purpose of using the… CONTINUE READING
