Abstract: This paper presents a novel approach to design compact wearable antennas based on metasurfaces. The behavior of compact metasurfaces is modeled with a composite right-left handed transmission line (CRLH TL). By controlling the dispersion curve, the resonant modes of the compact metasurface can be tuned efficiently. A printed coplanar waveguide (CPW) monopole antenna is used as the feed structure to excite the compact metasurface, which will result in a low profile antenna with low backward radiation. Following this approach, two compact antennas are designed for wearable applications. The first antenna is designed to operate at its first negative mode (-1 mode), which can realize miniaturization, but maintain the broadside radiation as for a normal microstrip antenna. The proposed prototype resonates around 2.65 GHz, with a matching bandwidth of 300 MHz. The total dimensions of the antenna are 39.4x33.4 mm2 (0.1 λ02), and its maximum gain is 2.99 dBi. The second antenna targets dual-band operation at 2.45 GHz and 3.65 GHz. A pair of symmetric modes (±1 modes) are used to generate similar radiation patterns in these two bands. The size of the antenna is 55.79x52.25 mm2 (0.2 λ02), and the maximum gains are 4.25 dBi and 7.35 dBi in the two bands, respectively. Furthermore, the performance of the antennas is analyzed on the human body. The results show that the proposed antennas are promising candidates for Wireless Body Area Networks (WBAN).
