H. Visser, A. Reniers, V.P.R.V. An Ultra-Wideband Antenna using Button-Cell Batteries

2011
Vol. 1, pp.   conference URL  Abstract: A first prototype button-cell batteries UWB antenna has been made, using two CR2032, 3V button cell batteries, copper tape, a lumped element capacitor and inductor and standard PCB FR4 material. The configuration is based upon a microstrip UWB antenna designed by the first author. Measurements show a perfect DC behavior and a fair RF behavior, showing a slightly larger than anticipated reflection coefficient (-7.5dB) as a function of frequency. Through full-wave analysis and experiments a second, improved prototype will be realized. BibTeX:

H. Visser, R.V. A Miniature Printed Antenna With Outer Surface Cable Current Suppression and Low Proximity Effects 2011
Vol. 1European Conference on Antennas and Propagation, pp. 1837 – 1841  conference URL  Abstract: A miniature antenna has been designed for use in the 2.45 GHz ISM frequency band. The design, having dimensions 60 mm × 11 mm × 3.6 mm fits within an eye frame. The antenna shows an input impedance that is independent from the connected coaxial cable due to the specially shaped ground plane, including current blocking slots. The antenna performs well in free space as well as in close proximity to the human head due to an encapsulation of the antenna in a dielectric. BibTeX:

H. Visser, S.K. Radiative RF Power Transfer Solutions for Wireless Sensors 2014
Vol. 1International Symposium on Antennas and Propagation , pp. 1401 – 1402  conference URL  Abstract: Two rectennas are presented. One consists of a printed 5? antenna, connected to a loaded voltage doubling rectifier through a LC impedance matching network. The other one consists of a printed loop antenna, complex conjugately impedance-matched to the same rectifier. The second rectenna is reduced in size by a factor of more than four with respect to the first rectenna and showing a 55% RF-to-DC powerconversion efficiency at an input power level of -10 dBm. This is a 5% improvement with respect to the 5?-based rectenna. BibTeX:

H. Visser, S. Keyrouz, B.S. Optimized Rectenna Design 2015 Wireless Power Transfer
Vol. accepted for publication(), pp.   article URL  Abstract: Design steps are outlined for maximizing the RF-to-dc Power Conversion Efficiency (PCE) of a rectenna. Based on an analysis of the rectifier it turns out that the rectenna should be designed for low frequency and low input power levels, next to being impedance matched to the antenna. It is demonstrated that a rectenna thus designed, using a 50W antenna and lumped element matching network gives a superior PCE compared to state of the art. By omitting the matching network and directly, conjugate impedance matching the antenna to the rectifier, the PCE may be further increased and the rectenna size reduced as is demonstrated with a rectenna prototype measuring only 0.028 squared wavelengths at 868MHz and demonstrating a PCE of 55% for a -10dBm RF input power level.

M. Stoopman, S. Keyrouz, H.V.K.P.W.S. Co-Design of a CMOS Rectifier and Small Loop Antenna for Highly Sensitive RF Energy Harvesters 2014 IEEE Journal of Solid-State Circuits
Vol. 49(3), pp. 622-634  article URL  Abstract: In this paper, a design method for the co-design and integration of a CMOS rectifier and small loop antenna is described. In order to improve the sensitivity, the antenna-rectifier interface is analyzed as it plays a crucial role in the co-design optimization. Subsequently, a 5-stage cross-connected differential rectifier with a 7-bit binary-weighted capacitor bank is designed and fabricated in standard 90 nm CMOS technology. The rectifier is brought at resonance with a high-Q loop antenna by means of a control loop that compensates for any variation at the antenna-rectifier interface and passively boosts the antenna voltage to enhance the sensitivity. A complementary MOS diode is proposed to improve the harvester’s ability to store and hold energy over a long period of time during which there is insufficient power for rectification. The chip is ESD protected and integrated on a compact loop antenna. Measurements in an anechoic chamber at 868 MHz demonstrate a -27 dBm sensitivity for 1 V output across a capacitive load and 27 meter range for a 1.78 W RF source in an office corridor. The end-to-end power conversion efficiency equals 40% at -17 dBm. BibTeX:

Vol. 1Symposium on VLSI Circuits, pp. C226 – 227  conference URL  Abstract: This paper presents a self-calibrating RF energy harvester capable of harvesting at lower input power levels than current state-of-the-art RFharvesters. A 5 stage cross-connected bridge rectifier is brought at resonance with a high-Q loop antenna by means of a 7-bit binary weighted capacitor bank. A control loop compensates any variation in the antenna-rectifier interface and passively boosts the antenna voltage to enhance the sensitivity. The rectifier and capacitor bank have been implemented in standard 90nm CMOS technology, includes ESD protection and are integrated on the antenna. Measurements in an anechoic chamber at 868 MHz show a -26.3 dBm sensitivity for 1V output and 25 meter range for a 1.78 W RF source in an office corridor. The maximum power efficiency of the complete harvester is 31.5%. BibTeX:

Visser, H. Design Considerations for Low-Power, High-Sensitivity Rectennas 2014
Vol. 1European Conference on Antennas and Propagation, pp. 2957 – 2960  conference URL  Abstract: Through analysis it is found that the only steps available to maximize the voltage at the input of a rectifying and voltage multiplication circuit for a given low level of power available from the antenna are: Design the rectifier/multiplier circuit for a minimum real part of the input admittance and conjugate match the antenna to the rectifier/multiplier circuit. Use antenna miniaturization up to a level that still yields an acceptable radiation efficiency and start from a small loop antenna. BibTeX:

Visser, H. Far-Field RF Energy Transport 2013
Vol. 1Radio and Wireless Symposium, pp. 34 – 36  conference URL  Abstract: For Smart Building Integration many wireless sensors are needed. Far-field RF energy transport may be used to charge the batteries of these sensors. Due to path loss and transmit power limitations the RF power available at the sensors will be very low. By optimizing not only the receiving rectifying antenna, but also the transmitter radiation pattern, based on the propagation channel characteristics, the RF energytransport efficiency will be improved.

Visser, H. Printed Folded Dipole Antenna Design for Rectenna and RFID Applications 2013
Vol. 1European Conference on Antennas and Propagation, pp. 2852 – 2855  conference URL  Abstract: An approximate or engineering model for a modified, asymmetric stripfolded dipole antenna is discussed. The modification consists of adding short-circuit strips in the folded dipole arms, thereby giving means for input impedance tuning. This tuning is necessary for directly matching theantenna to the complex input impedance of the rectifier that is connected to the antenna to form a rectifying antenna or rectenna. The engineering model, when implemented in software, results in fast calculation times and allows implementation in an optimization shell for automatic antennasynthesis. To be able to use the antenna/rectenna in close proximity to a metallic object, while maintaining its low profile, the antenna will be placed on a thin EBG structure. First analysis results are demonstrated. BibTeX:

1994 Microwave Filters and Antennas for Personal Communication Systems, IEE Colloquium   inproceedings URL  Abstract: Many new satellite based services are planned for road vehicles including telephone and data communications, vehicle positioning systems and traffic information. Compact antennas are required to receive all these services. These must be cheap to manufacture, as conformal as possible with the vehicle, offer multiple frequency band operation and a variety of radiation patterns to operate with both geostationary and continuously orbiting satellites. Here the properties of annular ring microstrip patch antennas operating at higher order modes are assessed for use on vehicles in mobile communication systems. The antennas have been studied both theoretically and experimentally to examine the radiated beam shape, gain and the bandwidth for several methods of feeding. The performance of rings printed on different substrates and a glass superstrate are examined BibTeX:

Batchelor, J., Parker, E., Ziai, M., Sanchez-Romaguera, V. and Yeates, S. Ultra thin and transfer tattoo UHF RFID tags 2013 Proceedings of PIERS Stockholm 2013
Vol. 1(1)Progress In Electromagnetics Research Symposium (PIERS) (August 2013) Hosted in Stockholm, pp. 1-2  inproceedings URL  Abstract: This paper describes inkjet printing as a digital fabrication tool for the manufacture of RFID tags on flexible and porous substrates (i.e. paper). The RFID tag presented is a single layer, ultrathin UHF tag in the form of a transfer tattoo, [1] which evolved from ultra-thin, substrate insensitive tag designs, [2]. Operation has been demonstrated when mounted direct on the skin with initial read ranges in the region of 1m and subsequent improvements have enabled read range increases. The implications of ink sintering processes for paper based transfer tattoos will be discussed as specifically applied to this work, [3], and resulting patch conductivities and read ranges highlighted for tags printed on tattoo transfer paper, [4]. Recent developments in selective ink layering will be outlined to illustrate the benefits to cost effective fabrication and efficient tattoo patch operation. Finally, work integrating additional components to improve transponder efficiency will be presented and leading to the concept of an ultra-thin battery for power assisted tagging where on-skin read ranges of 6m are possible. The issues for fabrication will be discussed for deposition and fabrication of such ultra-low profile sensitive tattoo tags. BibTeX:

Control of ground plane influence on antenna radiation pattern for mobile handheld devices 2011 2011 Loughborough Antennas and Propagation Conference (LAPC 2011)2011 Loughborough Antennas & Propagation Conference, pp. 1-4  inproceedings URL  Abstract: This paper presents the effects of a choke-slot on solid ground plane of an antenna, fabricated on FR4 substrate to be used in mobile communication system. Techniques have been discussed to control the ground plane current and reduce any degradation. The simulations and measurements show that introducing a slot on a conventional solid ground plane can significantly improve the radiation pattern of an antenna. Good performance at the Personal Communication Service (PCS 1900) band promises the use of this antenna on personal mobility, advance cellular phone services and wireless communication services. Achieving the maximum gain towards the expected direction for mobile phone application with the help of a choke-slot on antenna’s ground plane demonstrates the effectiveness of this technique.

A study of concentric annular ring arrays is reported in which the rings are excited in various modes, resulting in toroidal beams pointing at different elevation angles. Switching between modes can provide a degree of beam steering. The gain of a single patch was 5-7 dB typically. However, this was found to be sensitive to the size of the ground plane on which it was mounted and this variation in gain has been investigated. A theoretical study is presented of a 4 element stacked array of concentric ring elements in which a degree of beam steering is attained by switching modes BibTeX:

Loughborough Antennas & Propagation Conference, LAPC 2009, LoughboroughLoughborough Antennas & Propagation Conference, LAPC 2009, pp. 420-432  inproceedings URL  Abstract: Planar inverted F antennas (PIFA) and micro-strip antennas are widely used in wireless devices as they can easily be integrated or hidden within wireless terminals. Conventional PIFA and micro-strip antenna designs typically offer narrow bandwidth of about 3-8 It has been proposed that the bandwidth of the PIFA can be increased by reducing the ground plane size and through the use of various feeding methods or stacked patches. Recently, some of these methods include using passive elements. Numerous studies have also been carried out to enhance the bandwidth of the conventional micro-strip antenna. Most of the proposed methods involve modification to the feeding structure or the inclusion of shorting post. While all the above mentioned methods offer various level of enhancement in operating bandwidth, this poster presents a wideband antenna using a combination of the various known methods to realise an antenna for use within the UHF band.

The RCS variations of the tag antenna are evaluated over azimuth and elevation angular ranges for three cases of load: short, matched load and open. The tag exhibits appreciably good differential RCS between its switching states over wide azimuth angular ranges and over the entire elevation angular ranges. The measured read range variations over the azimuth and elevation angular ranges are also presented to validate the simulated results. BibTeX:

Since these antennas will be close to the human body, the properties of the channels they are communicating through must be evaluated together with the enteraction between the channel and the antennas and between the antennas themselves. In order to include this information in the simulation of entire digital communications systems, system models for the antennas and the human body channel must be developed. The paper gives results of measurements on a single antenna and two antennas when placed simultaneously on the human body. Methods of developing system models for the antennas and the channel are explained. BibTeX:

Vol. Part 1Antennas and Propagation Society International Symposium, IEEE, APSURSI ’09, pp. 73-76  inproceedings URL  Abstract: This paper investigates the performance of RFID antennas on safety glasses. Dipole antennas have been designed to match an RFID chip and have been placed in different locations on standard safety glasses. The performance of the antenna is evaluated through simulations and measurements. Top center location is found to be best for optimal transmission in free space and when the glasses are worn. Reading range decreases by around 60% when the antenna is in close proximity to the human body. BibTeX:

Body Armour with Integral High Impedance Surface 2011 Proc. 5th European Conference on Antennas and Propagation (EUCAP)5th European Confernce on Antennas and Propagation (EUCAP), pp. 1061-1064  inproceedings URL  Abstract: This paper describes the performance of high impedance surfaces (HIS) integrated into body armour equipment. A protective insert made of Aramid material and a metallic woven layer is used as the dielectric material with a metallic ground plane of the HIS. The frequency selective layer added to create the high impedance surface consists of a 15×15 array of interwoven spiral elements capable of reducing size of the cell by over 98% compare to the typical square patch element. The HIS has been designed to operate at around the 400MHz band TETRA employed by the police and emergency services in Europe. The HIS is able to improve the matching of the antenna by over 7dB compared to the antenna mounted directly on the armour vest. The paper includes simulations and experiments. BibTeX:

2006 Antennas and Propagation, 2006. EuCAP 2006. First European Conference on Antennas and Propagation, 2006. EuCAP 2006. First European Conference on, pp. 1-4  inproceedings URL  Abstract: This paper reports a novel UWB antenna suitable for wireless on body applications. The antenna is based on previous studies of wearable button antennas and uses the circular metal nail employed in some buttons to create the radiating element of the antenna. The visible part of the antenna was fabricated using PTFE, although other dielectric or plastic material could be used. The novel antenna is intended for textile jackets where the button structure can be easily camouflaged and disregarded as a plastic button. The antenna is fed by a microstrip line and denim was used as the substrate as well as the superstrate that hides the feeding. The antenna achieves the 3.1GHz to 10.6GHz bandwidth required for the ultra-wide-band technology. The radiation patterns are those of a planar circular monopole antenna with no significant deleterious effect of the dielectric structure on the far-field patterns. BibTeX:

IEEE International Symposium on Antennas and PropagationIEEE International Symposium on Antennas and Propagation, pp. 1-4  inproceedings URL  Abstract: Rectangular waveguides (RWGs) are low loss guiding structures whose characteristics and advantages are well known. At microwave frequencies, they are traditionally found as hollow waveguides. A number of researchers have proposed the integration of RWGs to planar microwave circuits using multilayer LTCC, multi- and single-layer microwave laminates and photoimageable thick films. These so-called substrate integrated guides (SIW) result in dielectric filled rectangular waveguide and as such have a width reduction of epsilonr-1/2 over conventional waveguide. Several researchers have investigated microwave antennas in substrate-integrated waveguide technology. BibTeX:

The gesture of the body and positions of antennas on the 3D body surface in the simulation were extracted from data obtained by a motion capture system while the actual measurement was taking place using the dual band metallic button antennas. Additional simulation is done on a standard model available in XFdtd to compare the quality of created 3D model from this research. BibTeX:

The paper shows how much the degree of arm movement during walking action could influence the S21 value comparing to the effect of the model’s height. All experiments were done in a video studio so an indoor multipath environment could be expected. The channel transmission gain S21 of a main model and 5 additional models with similar height had been collected while they were performing walking action having two antennas attached on their right wrist and left chest. An arm movement experiment was done using a different model who was standing still before then moving his right arm to a different angle while S21 was measured. BibTeX:

This paper presents how a 3D animated human model is created using a 3D scanner and a motion capture system. Then this model is used in XFdtd, electromagnetic simulation software to obtain body worn channel properties. Three walking gestures from the created model, wearing dual band metallic button antennas, DBMBAs, were simulated and compared with the original measurements carried out on the real test human model. Furthermore, verification of the 3D animated model was achieved by comparing the simulation results of the main test model with measurements from 5 additional test models BibTeX:

Comparison of 3D scanned human models for off-body communications using motion capture 2012 Antennas and Propagation Conference2012 Loughborough Antennas & Propagation Conference (LAPC), pp. 1-4  inproceedings URL  Abstract: Body area networks are complex to analyze as there are several channel mechanisms occurring simultaneously, i.e. environmental multipath together with body motion and close coupling between worn antennas and human tissue. Electromagnetic (EM) simulation is an important tool since not all studies can be done on a real human. In order to gain insight into off-body communication involving a worn antenna, this paper uses a 3D animated model obtained from a 3D surface scanner and a motion capture system for full wave simulation of channels at 2.45 and 5.5GHz. To evaluate if the model can represent body area radio channels in general, a comparison of S21 of the simulated model with measurements from 5 other models of similar height to the main test subject is presented.

A 3D-surface scan of a human body has been combined with the walking movement captured using a motion capture system to generate the animated model. A comparison between measurement results taken on the real human subject and simulation results from the created animated model of the same human subject is examined to select the appropriate mesh size and material representing the body and antennas. The effect of body gesture on the on and off-body radio channels has been investigated with the ultimate aim of reducing transmit power between antennas. BibTeX:

Zuazola, I.G., Batchelor, J. and Elmirghani, J. Miniature Narrow Band PIFA Antenna for High Performance Wireless Systems 2009 Proc. 3rd European Conference on Antennas and Propagation, IEEE, EuCAP 2009, Berlin, 23-27 March 20093rd European Conference on Antennas and Propagation, pp. 395-396  inproceedings URL  Abstract: This paper introduces a miniature narrow band antenna for high performance systems using the WiMAX unlicensed band (5.470-5.725 GHz). this performance is achieved as a result of a low VSWR circule and “Q” quality factor. The antenna return loss (RL), VSWR circule and “Q” quality factor contour will be shown. Owing to its compact design this antenna is suitable for equipment integration as small as mobile handsets.

2005 Proc. LAPC Conference, pp. 217-220  inproceedings URL  Abstract: Abstract: Photonically driven antenna units suited for use in a Radio-Over-Fibre pico-cellular distribution systems are presented. The antenna units are intended to contain bi-directional amplification paths serving the GSM, 3G mobile (UMTS) and wireless LAN bands. A design study has been carried out to assess the effects of single or dual antenna solutions in regard of loop gain due to mutual coupling between the antennas. BibTeX:
