abstract
We present a flexible folded slot dipole implantable antenna operating in the Industrial, Scientific, and Medical (ISM) band (2.4-2.4835 GHz) for biomedical applications. To make the designed antenna suitable for implantation, it is embedded in bio-compatible Polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS). The antenna was tested by immersing it in a phantom liquid, imitating the electrical properties of the human muscle tissue. A study of the sensitivity of the antenna performance as a function of the dielectric parameters of the environment in which it is immersed was performed. Simulations and measurements in planar and bent state demonstrate that the antenna covers the complete ISM band. In addition, Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) measurements indicate that the antenna meets the required safety regulations.
