Abstract

See full text

A system and method for wirelessly transferring information electromagnetically at a specified first operating frequency range in a first medium and at a specified second operating frequency range in a second medium using an implantable multi-length antenna. The implantable multi-length antenna can be configured to appear electrically as a first electrical length in the first medium and as a different second electrical length in the second medium. In other examples, the first operating frequency range can be specified using the first electrical length and the second operating frequency range can be specified using the second electrical length.
