Abstract [en]

This thesis work is concerned with the design and performance analysis of purely textile antenna for wireless applications. The materials used for radiating element, ground plane and dielectric substrate are purely textile. Two types of antennas are studied, the microstrip patch antenna and RFID tag antenna. Each type of antenna is designed and fabricated using two different conductive textile materials as radiating element.

 The radiating element and ground plane of conventional printed antenna is manufactured with the metal plating on a solid dielectric substrate. The radiating element which is used in this thesis work has different characteristics as compared to printed antenna because it is made of conductive textile material which is less conductive than metal and elastic in nature. Each conductive textile material has different surface resistivity. The study has been made to analyze the effect on gain and radiation efficiency of the antenna when different conductive textile material is used as the radiating element. The measured results of the fabricated antennas present the full potential of conductive textile materials to be used as an antenna.
