Special Issue on Metamaterials for Antenna System Design and Optimization
Submission Date: 2020-12-25

When it involves wearable devices, most scientists, engineers and health care companies take the stance that they emit low degree radiation (usual orders of magnitude less than a mobile phone) that they pose no health risks at all. Some, however, still harbour a cautionary view. Electromagnetic (EM) radiation can also affect the brain cells, noting that small versions in electric fields can disrupt the firing of neurons inside the brain. Moreover, EM devices generating inter modulation interference inside the 4 to 12 Hz range can directly impact mind waves. Wearable electronics have turned out to be the norm over the last few years. Extensive use of wearable wi-fi devices (WWD) in extra proximity to the body has increased concern about the capacity organic effects because of the interaction of human tissues with electromagnetic (EM) fields. Human tissues absorb radio frequency (RF) waves that are capable of affecting power states at a molecular level, leading to dangerous effects. Remarkably, thermal impact because of the absorption of RF waves is a better organic manifestation than traditional Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) values. It is necessary to decrease the interplay of electromagnetic strength toward human while in use. There are a few factors which will impact SAR price like size, position, radiated energy and kind of antenna used. If the SAR value is too excessive, the antenna ought to be changed and also the transmit power is lowered, which directly yields decrease SAR. This special issue concentrates on using Metamaterials to optimize the antenna design to enhance the performance of the wearable antenna. Metamaterials are the structures which work as double negative materials (DNG). Their unique shape, geometry, size, orientation and arrangement gives them their smart properties capable of manipulating electromagnetic waves: through blocking, absorbing, enhancing, or bending waves, to achieve benefits that go past what is feasible with conventional materials. We invite researchers and practicing engineers to contribute original research articles that discuss issues related but not limited to: Design and optimization of wearable antenna SAR reduction techniques Gain enhancement by metamaterials Metamaterials as radomes, reflectors or lens for antenna optimization Low power, compact size metamaterial-based antenna design Radiation pattern engineering using metamaterials Embedded metamaterial antennas Wearable antenna communication in medical systems Flexible Metamaterial structures for antenna design Dual polarised Metamaterial structures for antenna optimization
