Wearable Small Antennas for Wireless Communication Systems


Dr. Albert Sabban


A. Sabban (IEEE M'87-SM'94) received the B.Sc degree and M.Sc degree Magna Cum Laude in electrical engineering from Tel Aviv University, Israel in 1976 and 1986 respectively. He received the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from Colorado University at Boulder, USA, in 1991. Dr. A. Sabban reasearch interests are microwave and antenna engineering. In 1976 he joined the armament development authority RAFAEL in Israel. In RAFAEL he worked as a senior researcher, group leader and project leader in the electromagnetic department till 2007. In 2007 he retired from RAFAEL. From 2008 to 2010 he worked as an RF Specialist and project leader in Hitech companies. From 2010 to date he is a senior lecturer and researcher in Ort Braude and Kinneret Colleges in Israel in the electrical engineering department. He published over 65 research papers and hold USA patents in the antenna area. He wrote four books and two chapters in books on microwave and antennas engineering.

Abstract - Communication, medical and cellular industry is in continuous growth in the last few years. Several wearable and small antennas will be presented in the course. The effect on human body tissues on the antenna and medical system will be presented in the course. Design considerations, computational results and measured results of several compact wideband printed antennas with high efficiency will be presented in the course. Novel wideband passive and active efficient wearable antennas for BAN applications are presented in this paper. Active wearable antennas may be used in receiving or transmitting communication and medical systems.

Course Topics:
- Wearable Systems For medical applications
- Microstrip wearable antennas
- Loop wearable antennas
- Helix wearable antennas
- Antennas S11 Variation as Function of Distance from Body
- Tunable antennas
- Applications of wearable antennas
- New Fractal small antennas
