Original Abstract

The paper is focused on the design of a three-element filtering antenna array fed by apertures which can be used on a human body for off-body communication. The filtering array was designed for the ISM band (5.8 GHz). The filtering array was simulated in CST Microwave Studio using a three-layer model of a human tissue. The three-layer phantom was manufactured to verify simulated results. The filtering antenna was fabricated and measured in a free space and on the phantom. Simulations and measurements were in good agreement.
