Abstract


A compact, low-profile, coplanar waveguide fed elliptical patch UWB antenna is proposed in this paper, and then imposed on human body environment for Wireless Body Area Network (WBAN) applications. A comparison of performance of the designed antenna is done in free space and modeled layered human body tissue phantom in terms of reflection co-efficient, radiation pattern and voltage standing wave ratio (VSWR). The antenna is designed in such a way that it can give good performance over free space as well as over modeled human tissue phantom without any prerequisite. The antenna provides a wide usable fractional bandwidth of more than 143% (2.39-14.43 GHz) with substrate permittivity ?r =3.38 which is a RO4000
