OPTICALLY TRANSPARENT MICROSTRIP ANTENNAS

In this paper, the authors discuss how optically transparent antennas may have potential applications as receivers/transmitters in wireless automotive applications. An optical conductor is required for designing these antennas. The authors describe a feasibility study which focused on the performance of antennas made from different transparent conductors. The antennas are compared to conventional copper-based and non-transparent antennas.
