Novel small-size directional antenna for UWB WBAN/WPAN applications

  title={Novel small-size directional antenna for UWB WBAN/WPAN applications},
  author={Maciej Klemm and I. Z. Kovcs and G. F. Pedersen and Gerhard Troster},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation},
This paper presents a novel small-size directional antenna design for ultrawide-band wireless body area networks/wireless personal area networks applications. The design is based on a typical slot antenna structure with an added reflector in order to achieve directionality. The effects of different antenna parameters and human body proximity on the radiation characteristics are analyzed. Antenna measurements with an optic RF setup were performed in order to characterize the small-size antenna… CONTINUE READING
