Abstract

A Wearable microwave head imaging is proposed for medical application, namely stroke and cancer detection. The wearable device in a hat-like structure incorporates an array of flexible ultra-wideband antenna. The characterization and assessment of a custom-made composite substrate using a flexible polymer poly-di-methyl-siloxane(PDMS) and magnetite iron oxide (FeO.Fe2O3) for wearable head imaging systems is presented. Micro-scale FeO.Fe2O3 particles are homogenously combined with PDMS in different ratios to build the flexible engineered magneto-dielectric (MD) composite substrate. Besides the low cost, fabrication simplicity, and durability, the magnetite FeO.Fe2O3 particles can be used to control the relative permittivity and permeability over a wide range of values to suit the proposed application. The permittivity ,permeability and losses of the developed substrate are extracted using a custom-made 2-port multilayer microstrip transmission line test fixture with the help of conformal mapping algorithms. Our proposed design has been designed and analyzed using HFSS tool.
