Abstract

This paper shows that L-shaped monopole antenna on PPS manufactured by inkjet printing of nano silver ink is able to produce very competitive overall antenna performance against Rogers copper foil structures if the thickness of the printed conductor layer is about the skin depth at the operating frequency multiplied by four.
