Video: Origami Textile Antennas
Chaudhari is developing an origami-based tessellated antenna whose operating frequency and radiation pattern can be self-tuned by adjusting the shape of the antenna itself.
"The antenna is fabricated using polymer threads, and can be easily integrated into clothing and mechanical structures to provide a non-invasive way to quantify flexion and deformation. The project provides a unique opportunity to incorporate art with electromagnetics, and I am very excited by the potential applications," he said.
