Compact Antennas for Wireless Communications and Terminals: Theory and Design (Hardcover)

J. Laheurte




This book deals with compact microwave antennas and more specifically with the planar version of these antennas, which are the most relevant type of antennas in modern communication systems. It also covers all applications requiring miniaturization, integration, and conformation, such as mobile phone handsets. The book is dedicated to students, engineers, and scientists eager to understand the principles of planar and small antennas, design and fabrication issues, and modern aspects such as UWB antennas, reconfigurable antennas, and diversity issues.
