Optimizing antenna design for near-field operation - RF Cafe Forums

The original RF Cafe Forums were shut down in late 2012 due to maintenance issues - primarily having to spend time purging garbage posts from the board. At some point I might start the RF Cafe Forums again if the phpBB software gets better at filtering spam.

Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

Hi Everyone,

If I want to optimize an antenna (at around 1GHz) for magnetic near-field coupling, what options do I have? Off hand, I'm thinking that something like a loop antenna would be a good start, as the magnetic field dominates in the near-field. Still, is there some way to minimize my far-field radiation while getting good near-field coupling?

I'd appreciate any insights! Thanks!

Hi gt7235d,

You could use a shielded loop. This should effectively ensure that there is no E-field and all you would be left with is the H-field since the tangential component of E field on the conductor being used as the shield should be 0.

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
