In this paper, we proposed a small transparent thin film antenna for a wireless capsule endoscopy system. The transparent thin film antenna is needed to provide a clear 360° broad-sight view of the wireless capsule system in the future. Furthermore, the transparent thin film is critical for performing the dual-polarized antenna operating at 2.45 GHz. The proposed transparent thin film uses the nano-alignment process to further achieve low resistivity from 3.78 × 10−4 Ω-cm to 9.14 × 10−5 Ω-cm and improves the transparency by over 70%. The nano-alignment process includes periodic electrodes with AC signals that can effectively rearrange the nano-material into an ordered arrangement, enhancing the thin film’s microwave characteristics. Due to applying to the capsule endoscopy system, the ability of water resistance is also considered in this design. Therefore, the O2 plasma treatment is used to improve the water contact angle from 76° to 31°, measured on the surface of the thin film. The proposed transparent antenna is designed to have a center frequency of 2.45 GHz, a bandwidth of 855 MHz, and an antenna gain of −26.3 dBi, and is helpful for capsule endoscopy systems.
