Near field communication (NFC) antennas are often lined with magnetic sheets to reduce performance degradation caused by nearby metal objects. Though amorphous sheets have a high permeability and are suitable magnetic sheets for lining, their magnetic loss is also high. Therefore, this paper suggests a technique of suppressing magnetic loss by modifying the shape of the sheet without changing its composition. The utility of the proposed technique was investigated in this study.
