Hi-Performance Wearable Antennas
Wearable electronics are smart devices that can be worn on the body as implants or accessories. Over the past decade, consumer demands for smart devices has increased drastically, especially ones with conformal flexible surface. While the desired flexibility can be achieved using 3D printing, the resulting devices often suffer from poor radio frequency (RF) performance and stability. Researchers at SUNY New Paltz have found a way to overcome this problem by using blend polymers as the 3D printing material to improve the RF performance, without sacrificing its dexterity.
