Abstract

In this paper, we present a spiral loop type antenna, implanted in the tibial bone. The antenna has been designed for fabrication on commercially available RT Duroid 6010 (Hr =10.2) substrate and encapsulated in biologically compatible Polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) material (Hr=2.6). The antenna has a footprint of 2.6mm x 2.6 mm and a height of 1.94 mm. The antenna operates at the 2.4 GHz ISM band with the peak gain of -36.2 dBi.
