Wearable and RFID Antennas

Description

A promising area of research allowing smaller, lighter weight, and lower cost electronic devices is fabrication on low cost organic substrates such as paper and polymers. Organic and polymer substrates are cheaper, lighter, and in the case of organics more environmentally friendly with the additional advantage of providing flexibility. These features are ideal for designing conformal and wearable antennas for applications such as wearable devices used for medical monitoring, cheap and flexible RFID tags for tracking and localization, and environmentally friendly disposable devices. Despite the attractive applications, there are many obstacles to bring these devices into the mainstream, making it an area of active research.

Researchers are invited to contribute original research articles addressing the challenges in the design, implementation, and characterization of wearable, flexible antennas for various applications. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Flexible and conformal antennas
  • Inkjet-printed antennas
  • Textile antennas
  • Antennas on novel materials (paper, plastics, polymers, etc.)
  • RFID antennas
  • Circuits integrated antennas (on-chip antennas)
  • Flexible and wearable antennas characterization techniques
  • Antenna in RFIC packages
