Abstract

Graphite paper sheets and conductive polymer films are investigated individually as flexible conductors for a Planar Inverted-F Antenna (PIFA) proposed for wearable applications. These two non-metallic PIFA realizations operate at 5.8 GHz and exhibit excellent mechanical resilience with satisfactory antenna efficiencies. In addition, the two antennas are measured to be insensitive to bending and the human body in proximity. These findings indicate that the proposed graphite paper and conductive polymer are promising non-metallic conductors for flexible wearable antennas.
