Abstract

This paper presents a circularly polarized antenna on thin and flexible Denim substrate for Industrial, Scientific and Medical (ISM) band and Wireless Body Area Network (WBAN) applications at 2.45 GHz. Copper tape is used as the conductive material on 1 mm thick Denim substrate. Circular polarization is achieved by introducing rectangular slot along diagonal axes at the center of the circular patch radiator. Bandwidth enhancement is done using partial and slotted ground plane. The measured impedance bandwidth of the proposed antenna is 6.4 % (2.42 GHz to 2.58 GHz) or 160 MHz. The antenna exhibits good radiation characteristics with gain of 2.25 dB. Simulated and measured results are presented to validate the operability of antenna within the proposed frequency bands.
