Reconfigurable Graphene Annular Ring Antenna for Medical and Imaging Applications

Progress In Electromagnetics Research M, Vol. 89, 53-62, 2020
Abstract
In this article, we design a reconfigurable bandwidth based on a concentric ring slot antenna using graphene. The developed antenna has good agreement between simulated and experimental results. The use of graphene in Terahertz (THz) has shown better performance than metal, and the variation in the chemical potential of graphene provides excellent performance properties, good return loss reaching -33.288 dB, bandwidth reconfiguration from 255 GHz to 406 GHz, and a good gain. These results are promising for THz applications and particularly for the application of medical imaging. The modeling and validation are performed using the CST Simulator.
