Abstract

This paper presents the study results of the Self-complementary Bow-tie Antenna (SCBT-antenna) for microwave imaging. The most important milestones are to select the optimal antenna characteristics for MWI and to model and simulate the array element using specialized software packages. The antenna was modelled on an aluminum nitride substrate with a dielectric constant of 8.6 and thickness of 1.5 mm. The breast phantom was presented as a parallelepiped with dimensions of 100×100×52 mm, which consist two layers (adipose tissue and 2 mm thickness skin) and a spherical inclusion imitating the tumor. The simulation results obtained from CST software showed a -10 dB return loss bandwidth from 1.75 to 2.36 GHz in free space and 1.45-1.77 GHz when the antenna was placed at the proximity of the tissue. Penetration depth was approximately 30-40 mm. Further investigation of the antenna is required using phantoms with more anatomical details.
