Implantable CPW-fed Double-Crossed-Type Triangular Slot Antenna for ISM Band

Conference paper
Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC, volume 243)


In this paper, an implantable CPW-fed double-crossed-type triangular slot antenna mounted over human tissue is proposed for biomedical applications. The proposed antenna covers the ISM band of 2.45 GHz. The radiation parameters such as return loss, VSWR, Z-parameter are analyzed using the method of moments software (IE3D).The proposed antenna has substantial merits like miniaturization, lower return loss, and better impedance matching and high gain over other implanted antennas.
