Next-generation small antenna design techniques
This authoritative text provides the most up-to-date methods on the theory and design of small antennas, including an extensive survey of small antenna literature published over the past several years. Written by experts at the forefront of antenna research, Small Antennas: Miniaturization Techniques & Applications begins with a detailed presentation of small antenna theory--narrowband and wideband--and progresses to small antenna design methods, such as materials and shaping approaches for multiband and wideband antennas.
Generic miniaturization techniques are presented for narrowband, multiband, and wideband antennas. Two chapters devoted to metamaterials antennas and methods to achieve optimal small antennas, as well as a chapter on RFID technologies and related antennas, are included in this comprehensive volume. Coverage includes:

Describes some of the more up-to-date developments in the design of small antennas from both the analytical and practical aspects, taking as examples the discretely- and continuously-loaded wire antennas. Discusses the principles of small antenna design and examines analytically the performance of small antennas when affixed onto real-life objects. Coverage encompasses applications and requirements for small and low-profile antennas, fundamental principles associated with small antenna design--particularly bandwidth and efficiency requirements, types of wire antennas (with and without discrete loadings, either passive or active), an alternative method of loading to give height reduction, performance of antennas located on or near real size objects, and much more. Includes a user's guide to small antenna types now available. Illustrated.About the Author:
