Abstract

Electromagnetic compensation of mechanical bending and thermoregulation are examined for a deformable rectangular microstrip patch antenna. The pressure-driven transport of particles within the circulatory system of the human skin is used as a biologically-inspired model which is applied to provide both thermoregulation and compensation of physical bending. The design and operation of an automated system to monitor bending and coordinate fluid displacement in a flexible patch antenna will be discussed along with the impact of mixing nano-scale particles into the fluid for electromagnetic operations on the flow rate and ability of the fluidic system to regulate the temperature of the antenna and surrounding substrate.
