Abstract
In this paper, a conformal wideband circularly polarized (CP) antenna is presented for endoscopic capsule application over the 915-MHz Industrial, Scientific, and Medical (902-928 MHz) band. The thickness of the antenna is only 0.2 mm, which can be wrapped inside a capsule's inner wall. By cutting meandered slots on the patch, using open-end slots on the ground, and utilizing two long arms, the proposed antenna obtains a significant size reduction. In the conformal form, the antenna volume measures only 66.7 mm(3). A single-layer homogeneous muscle phantom box is used for the initial design and optimization with parametric studies. The effect of the internal components inside a capsule is discussed in analyzing the antenna's performance and to realize a more practical scenario. In addition, a realistic human body model in a Remcom XFdtd simulation environment is considered to evaluate the antenna characteristics and CP purity, and to specify the specific absorption rate limit in different organs along the gastrointestinal tract. The performance of the proposed antenna is experimentally validated by using a minced pork muscle phantom and by using an American Society for Testing and Materials phantom immersed in a liquid solution. For measurements, a new technique applying a printed 3-D capsule is devised. From simulations and measurements, we found that the impedance bandwidth of the proposed antenna is more than 20% and with a maximum simulated axial ratio bandwidth of around 29.2% in homogeneous tissue. Finally, a wireless communication link at a data rate of 78 Mb/s is calculated by employing link-budget analysis.
