J-slot EBG structure for SAR Reduction of Dual Band J-slot Textile Antenna

Ramesh Manikonda, Rajyalakshmi Valluri, Mallikarjuna Rao Prudhivi


In this article, the dual band is achieved with J-slot on rectangular Textile antenna on Jeans fabric as substrate. It resonates at the 2.4 GHz and 5.4 GHz of Wireless Body Area Network (WBAN) bands. The novel J-slot Electromagnetic Band Gap (EBG) array consists of 2x2 elements. It is used as superstrate of J-slot textile antenna for Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) reduction and gain enhancement. The Reflection coefficient and VSWR of dual band textile antenna are simulated and measured with and without human body.
