ABOUT THE PHOTO Passive RFID systems, consisting of readers and tags, are expected to replace bar codes as the primary means of identification, inventory and billing of everyday items. The tags typically consist of an RFID chip placed on a flexible film containing a planar antenna. The antenna captures radiation from the reader's signal to power the tag electronics, which then responds to the reader's query. The PENI Tag (Product Emitting Numbering Identification Tag) shown, developed by the University of Pittsburgh in a team led by Professor Marlin H. Mickle, integrates the antenna with the rest of the tag electronics. RFID systems involve many electomagnetics concepts, including antennas, radiation, transmission lines, and microwave circuit components. (Photo courtesy of Marlin H. Mickle.)

This comprehensive new resource focuses on applied electromagnetics and takes readers beyond the conventional theory with the use of contemporary mathematics to improve the practical use of electromagnetics in emerging areas of field communications, wireless power transfer, metamaterials, MIMO and direction-of-arrival systems. The book explores the existing and novel theories and principles of electromagnetics in order to help engineers analyze and design devices for today's applications in wireless power transfers, NFC, and metamaterials. This book is organized into clear and logical sections spanning from fundamental theory, to applications, promoting clear understanding through-out. This resource presents the theory of electromagnetic near fields including chapters on reactive energy, spatial and spectral theory, the scalar antenna, and the morphogenesis of electromagnetic radiation in the near field zone. The Antenna Current Green's Function Formalism is explored with an emphasis on the foundations, the organic interrelationships between the fundamental operational modes of general antenna systems, and the spectral approach to antenna-to-antenna interactions. The book offers perspective on nonlocal metamaterials, including the material response theory, the far-field theory, and the near-field theory.
Engineers do not have the time to wade through rigorously theoretical books when trying to solve a problem. Beginners lack the expertise required to understand highly specialized treatments of individual topics. This is especially problematic for a field as broad as electromagnetics, which propagates into many diverse engineering fields. The time has come to find a middle ground. The Handbook of Engineering Electromagnetics links theory to specific applications with an integrated approach to areas such as wireless communications, fiber optics, microwaves, radar, materials science, and even biomedical engineering. This book not only provides the necessary formulas, figures, and tables, but also the underlying theory and insight needed to formulate and solve real-world engineering problems. A team of international experts discusses fundamental concepts such as Maxwell equations, static fields, electromagnetic induction, transmission lines, waveguides, and electromagnetic compatibility. They also explore specific technologies, various numerical techniques used for computer-aided solutions, biological effects and safety standards, biomedical applications, and measuring electromagnetic properties of biological materials. With tables and graphs integrated into the discussion, each chapter is a nearly self-contained oasis of practical and theoretical problem-solving information for individual applications, with references directing you to more in-depth information. Appendices provide brief compilations of key constants and units as well as a tutorial on vector analysis and coordinate systems.
Electromagnetics is too important in too many fields for knowledge to be gathered on the fly. A deep understanding gained through structured presentation of concepts and practical problem solving is the best way to approach this important subject. Fundamentals of Engineering Electromagnetics provides such an understanding, distilling the most important theoretical aspects and applying this knowledge to the formulation and solution of real engineering problems. Comprising chapters drawn from the critically acclaimed Handbook of Engineering Electromagnetics, this book supplies a focused treatment that is ideal for specialists in areas such as medicine, communications, and remote sensing who have a need to understand and apply electromagnetic principles, but who are unfamiliar with the field. Here is what the critics have to say about the original work "...accompanied with practical engineering applications and useful illustrations, as well as a good selection of references ... those chapters that are devoted to areas that I am less familiar with, but currently have a need to address, have certainly been valuable to me. This book will therefore provide a useful resource for many engineers working in applied electromagnetics, particularly those in the early stages of their careers." -Alastair R. Ruddle, The IEE Online "...a tour of practical electromagnetics written by industry experts ... provides an excellent tour of the practical side of electromagnetics ... a useful reference for a wide range of electromagnetics problems ... a very useful and well-written compendium..." -Alfy Riddle, IEEE Microwave Magazine Fundamentals of Engineering Electromagnetics lays the theoretical foundation for solving new and complex engineering problems involving electromagnetics.
