Original Abstract

In the paper, planar slot loop antennas are presented. The antennas radiate electromagnetic waves which are polarized perpendicularly to a conductive surface. Therefore, the antennas can be used for on-body or off-body communication. The role of the substrate is played by a three-dimensional textile material. Conductive parts of antennas are fabricated by a screen-printing technology using a silver paste. Walls of waveguides integrated into the textile substrate are created by sewing with a conductive thread. Functionality of antennas was verified by computer simulations and measurements.
