Abstract

The interaction between the circular loop antenna and human tissue is investigated. Return loss, radiation efficiency and specific absorption rate (SAR) when in proximity to human tissue is evaluated for various loop orientations with respect to the tissue. The simulated internal SAR distribution is shown for various orientations with respect to the tissue.
