    Research output: Contribution to journalArticleScientificpeer-review


    The impedenace change that occurs when the user holds a mobile phone antenna is a well-known problem. This paper analyses the contributions to this change for a dual-band PIFA. In particular, the contribution of the slot is shown and a method of reducing it is proposed and analyzed.
