3D Printed Flexible Antennas

Description:

Abstract:

Method to create three dimensional sub-mm wavelength, and sub-THz frequency antennas on flexible and in-situ cured dielectric material along with directly printed metallic antenna elements over the dielectric.  The three dimensional sub-mm wavelength antennas have applications in wearable flexible electronics as well as ultra-high speed chip-to-chip communication.  Reliable antenna designs with three dimensional curved geometries can provide significant area/volume compaction and directionality to the signal propagation.

        

Applications and Advantages:

Wearable flexible electronics as well as ultra-high speed chip-to-chip communications.
