The book discusses the up-to-date basics of modern antenna design and theory. Written in a very practical and concise manner, specifically suited to practicing professionals, as well as higher-level students. Authors are experts in Antenna Design, and have experience both from academia and industry. In addition to material on basics of antenna design, the book contains a chapter on special topics covering electrically small antennas, mobile antennas, UWB antennas and new materials for antennas (amongst others)
The book covers the following topics:
The basics of transmission lines, radiowaves and propagation, and antenna theory;
Antenna analysis and design using the basic antenna theory and industrial standard design software tools;
Antenna measurement equipment, facilities and techniques;_
Some special topics, such as: Mobile antennas and antenna diversity, Wide-band and multi-band antennas, RFID antennas, UWB antennas, Reconfigurable antennas, MIMO antennas, Radar antennas, Electrically small antennas
Developed specifically for engineers and designers who work with radar and radio communications, it will give the readers an understanding of antenna theory and techniques, the skills to analyse, design and measure various antennas, and the knowledge of antenna measurements in a very practical and hands-on manner. The book will also be useful for 3rd & 4th year and graduate students.
