Abstract
ABSTRACTIn this article, a novel low specific absorption rate (SAR) printed planar invert-F antenna (PIFA) antenna for wideband application is presented. The prototype antenna was designed to cover the frequency range between 1200 and 3000 MHz. Its radiation pattern is approximately omnidirectional, VSWR < 2, gain in the range 2–4.6 dBi, and efficiency greater than 78%. The prototype antenna exhibits a low SAR of around 1.04 for 1 g at 1800 MHz, which is less than 51% than a conventional PIFA antenna. The antenna's performance was evaluated using finite element method (FEM) and time domain method (TDM) in electromagnetic (EM) simulation tools like HFSS and CST M...
