Project description

The aim of the project consists of designing an antennas which can be implanted into the human body. Moreover, the in-body and in-to-out-body wireless communication link between the implanted antennas and communication nodes outside the body will be characterized. The absorption of electromagnetic radiation by the body due to the implanted antenna will be measured.
