Electromagnetics of Body-area Networks : Antennas, Propagation, and Rf Systems (Hardcover) (Douglas H.
about this item
This book focuses on research and development of electromagnetic considerations for body-area networks including antennas and propagation, as well as relevant RF radio circuit and sensor technologies. The book is a comprehensive treatment of the field, covering fundamental theoretical principles and new technological advancements, to state-of-the-art device design, as well as examples encompassing a wide range of related sub-areas. In particular, the first area of focus will be the recent development of novel wearable and implantable antenna concepts and designs including metamaterial-based wearable antennas, microwave circuit integrated wearable filtering antennas; textile and/or fabric material enabled wearable and implantable antennas,etc. The second set of topics will cover advanced wireless propagation and the associated statistical models for on-body, in-body, and off-body modes. Other sub-areas such as efficient numerical human body modeling techniques, artificial phantom synthesis and fabrication, as well as low-power RF integrated circuits and related sensor technology will also be discussed. These topics have been carefully selected for their transformational impact on the next generation of body-area network systems and beyond. Each chapter will be written by an internationally recognized author or group of authors covering the latest research results.
