Performance Evaluation of a Novel Wearable HIS Patch Antenna for Mobile Applications

Naeem Khan


In this paper an artificial magnetic material known as High Impedance Surface (HIS) is used for the performance evaluation and design of wearable patch antenna. HIS is actually a new type of ground plane that has considerably high surface impedance. Hence surface wave propagation on the ground plane is not supported. The use of HIS is now rapidly increasing due to its improved performance. In this paper, HIS is introduced with a new type of feeding technique known as line feeding technique at an operating frequency of 5.1 GHz and the antenna parameters evaluated here are Gain, Antenna efficiency and radiation efficiency. These parameters are improved to 15.54%, 28.84% and 3.4% respectively
