Discover this comprehensive yet concise reference including the definitions, requirements, and available options for multifunctional antennas
Multifunctional Antennas and Arrays for Wireless Communication Systems delivers an exploration of the state-of-the-art in multifunctional antennas and arrays for efficient frequency spectrum management. The book covers a range of topics related to multiple radiating modes in reconfigurable phased arrays, anti-jamming antennas, and polarization reconfigurability. The distinguished authors also describe current approaches to achieving reconfigurable antennas.The book discusses electrically small reconfigurable antennas, massive MIMO antennas for simultaneous multiple generation, beam peak, and null forming, as well as reconfigurable antennas for 4G and 5G. Finally, Massive MIMO applications, the use of metamaterial and metasurfaces, and recent developments in reconfigurable antennas appropriate for 5G networks are covered.
Multifunctional Antennas and Arrays for Wireless Communication Systems shows readers how to understand, design, and work with compact, light, and inexpensive antenna technology. Readers will also benefit from the inclusion of:
- A thorough introduction to multiple radiating modes-based pattern reconfigurable phased arrays and anti-jamming antennas
- A presentation of several approaches to realizing reconfigurable antennas, including Liquid Crystal Polymer, liquid metal, and RF-MEMS reconfigurable antennas
- Coverage of special topics, including multiple input multiple output (MIMO) reconfigurable antennas and massive MIMO antennas for simultaneous multiple generation and beam peak and null forming
- A discussion of electrically small reconfigurable antennas
Perfect for students, engineers, and researchers studying and working on wireless communications technology, Multifunctional Antennas and Arrays for Wireless Communication Systems will also earn a place in the libraries of engineers in related fields, like RF devices, who seek a one-stop reference for this essential technology.
