Theoretical and experimental study of the proximity effects of thinwire antenna in pressure of biological bodies
Abstract
The electromagnetic coupling caused by placing a biological body in the vicinity of a radiating antenna was studied. A numerical solution to the above mentioned problem is presented and the current distribution on the antenna and the induced electric fields inside the biological body are quantified. Experiments were conducted using a plexiglass container of suitable dimensions filled with saline solution to represent the biological body. Perturbation of input impedance from its free space value is plotted as a function of distance of separation between antenna and the body.
