This paper proposes the design of a new in vivo applicator of nsPEFs suitable for whole body exposure of several newborn mice. The system is based on a UWB patch antenna and exhibits a wide operating band (300-1100 MHz). To improve the system efficiency, a dielectric box, with permittivity similar to that of the mouse has been used as sample holder, placed on the antenna and completely covering it. The system shows a good efficiency and acceptable homogeneity within the samples. © Springer Science+Business Media Singapore 2016.

Abstract

This paper proposes the design of a new in vivo applicator of nsPEFs suitable for whole body exposure of several newborn mice. The system is based on a UWB patch antenna and exhibits a wide operating band (300-1100 MHz). To improve the system efficiency, a dielectric box, with permittivity similar to that of the mouse has been used as sample holder, placed on the antenna and completely covering it. The system shows a good efficiency and acceptable homogeneity within the samples. © Springer Science+Business Media Singapore 2016.
