Abstract

In this article, a novel and compact super wide band (SWB) conformal textile antenna structure is presented. The increasing interest in wearable personal area networks in civil, medical, sport wear and military domains promises to replace wired communication networks in the near future in which antennas play a paramount role. In this antenna, the substrate is made from jeans material while patch and ground is made out of copper tape. This antenna resonates at frequencies from 1.8GHz to 23.8 GHz. Here, the performance of this antenna in terms of resonance frequency fluctuations, return loss and radiation pattern deformation at different bending angles is observed as well.
