Next Generation Mobile phone antenna and its SAR investigation

Main Article Content



This work presents the design and Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) investigation of Fifth Generation (5G) antenna for future mobile communication networks. The radiating patch is made up of copper material backed by a 0.254 mm thicker Roggers-5880 substrate (N9000 PTFE) having relative permittivity and loss tangent of 22x10-1 and 9x10-4, correspondingly. The antenna resonates at 23 GHz frequency band. The major lobe gain of the single component 5G antenna is 7.16 dB.To meet the gain requirements of 5G mobile communication systems, 1 x 4 element array antenna has been proposed which increases the bore side gain up to 12.6 dB at the desired frequency. The proposed antennas efficiency is 91-94 % with a sufficient amount of driving point impedance bandwidth (S11<- 10 dB), i.e. 600-620 MHz;The SAR of the proposed antenna is analyzed at two different parts of human body, i.e. belly and hand. The SAR is averaged over 10g of tissue. The proposed 1 x 4 element antenna gives lower values of SAR (<2 W/kg) on all parts of human body. The proposed array antenna can be used in 5G mobile handheld devices. All the simulations are carried out using CST MWS. The proposed antenna is suitable contender for 5G mobile communication systems. Keywords
