In this paper we present the characterization by galvanic coupling (direct contact) of radio-frequency (RF) driven RLC resonators made of different biodegradable materials, including biodegradable metals and new biodegradable conducting polymers. An equivalent electrical circuit is proposed based on the RLC resonator geometry and material properties. The Matlab modeling and the finite elements HFSS simulations are in good agreement with the measurements, and allow to extract the loaded and unloaded parameters of the RLC resonators for different materials.
