There have been many researches on the antenna performance degradation with the presence of the human body around the antenna structure to accomodate personal communication service [1][2]. To better understand the human body effects on the antenna resonance, radiation pattern, and input impedance, simulation was carried out with changing of the distance between antenna and lossy material. Effects on the antenna performance by the surrounding materials are also important in the case of the RFID system. It is desirable that the tag antennas for RFID system must reveal isotropic radiation pattern as well as attain the good impedance matching. In this paper, we investigated the antenna resonance and input impedance characteristic when there exist a lossy material sphere near various types of antenna at 900 MHz. In short antenna resonance was mostly affected by lossy material in the case of a rectangular loop antenna, and impedance variation was smallest in the case of a halfwave dipole.
