Abstract

Operational frequencies of miniaturized in-body/out-body dual use antenna are described. For miniaturization, millimeter-wave dipole antenna is employed. In the out-body condition, its operational frequency is 60 GHz and in the in-body condition (we assume it in the water), it drops to 10-20GHz due to the high dielectric constant medium (i.e. human body or water). Since the propagation loss inside of human body becomes high at high frequency range, we can reduce the loss by using relatively lower frequency with same antenna. This result shows the feasibility of the in-body/out-body dual use antenna which utilizes different frequencies at millimeter-wave/microwave range.
