Abstract : The main issue to tune controlled devices by the application of a DC magnetic field comes up against the high value of the field's intensity required for their implementation. This work presents an implementation of magneto-dielectric materials (MDM) specifically manufactured for their integration in antenna devices operating in VHF band. The twofold objective is: (i) reduction in antenna size, (ii) frequency tuning of the antenna using a low intensity magnetic control. A notable permeability variation of MDM samples is observed when the symmetry of the lines of the control field, with an intensity less than 10 Oe, is consistent with the one of the structures in the magnetic domains. The MDM allows a miniaturization of 20% of an inverted-F antenna (IFA) antenna structure, and an agility of about 2.5% for a control field of 1.5 Oe.
