Basic Design Considerations for Implanted and Embedded Antennas

Nokia is interested in research of both in-body (implanted) antennas and antennas in close proximity to the human body. Nokia is particularly interested in making positive use of the electromagnetic coupling between the antenna and the human body, know as positive body effects. The internship research will focus on fundamental antennas, electric and magnetic dipoles in lossy matter, with a goal to show, quantitatively, that the magnetic dipole is better suited to implanted applications.
