Study on metamaterial-based bio-inspired microstrip antenna array for 5G enabled mobile health technology

John Colaco, Jillian Cotta


5G is a fifth-generation wireless technology that
enables extremely fast data transfers and massive connection
capacity. Existing Mobile health technology requires more reliable
connection power and data transfer rates. The purpose of this
research is to design, analyse, and compare the performance of a
bio-inspired lotus-shaped microstrip patch antenna array with two
to three radiating elements. The proposed antenna utilizes
proximity coupled indirect microstrip transmission line feeding
technique operating in the 24 GHz-30 GHz frequency band. The
results indicate that performance continues to improve as the
number of radiating elements increases. Moreover, each radiating
element is loaded with complementary and non-complementary
split-ring resonators (SRRs). The performance of the proposed
microstrip antenna array is then analysed and compared with and
without split-ring resonators. The findings validate that the
proposed bio-inspired metamaterial-based microstrip patch array
antenna is more reliable and performs better than an antenna
without SRRs
