Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The aim of this work is to develop an analytically-based approach for ultra wide band (UWB) body area network (BAN) channel modeling. In detail, the body will be modeled as multi-layered stratified cylinders of infinite length, and the Maxwell's equation will be solved for plane wave and line source excitations. Human-type tissues will be assumed in the multi-layered stratified cylindrical model. Validation of the procedure through measurement results has been provided.
