This book presents ultrawideband antennas and their applications on microwave imaging. The chapters focus on recent techniques, analysis, and applications along with the future vision of this emerging field of applied electromagnetics. Several emerging topics are essayed, including dielectric resonator antennas and planar ultrawideband antennas for microwave imaging. This resource incorporates modern design concepts, analysis, and optimization techniques based on recent developments. Readers are also provided with an extensive overview of current regulations, including those related to microwave effects in biological tissues.
Modelling and computations in electromagnetics is a quite fast-growing research area. The recent interest in this field is caused by the increased demand for designing complex microwave components, modeling electromagnetic materials, and rapid increase in computational power for calculation of complex electromagnetic problems. The first part of this book is devoted to the advances in the analysis techniques such as method of moments, finite-difference time- domain method, boundary perturbation theory, Fourier analysis, mode-matching method, and analysis based on circuit theory. These techniques are considered with regard to several challenging technological applications such as those related to electrically large devices, scattering in layered structures, photonic crystals, and artificial materials. The second part of the book deals with waveguides, transmission lines and transitions. This includes microstrip lines (MSL), slot waveguides, substrate integrated waveguides (SIW), vertical transmission lines in multilayer media as well as MSL to SIW and MSL to slot line transitions.
This text offers a practical, device-based approach to the study of microwave and wireless communications. Student objectives, questions and problems, and end-of-chapter summaries are used to reinforce the points made
This book uses the first volume’s exploration of theory, basic properties, and modeling topics to develop readers’ understanding of applications and devices that are based on artificial materials. It explores a wide range of applications in fields including electronics, telecommunications, sensing, medical instrumentation, and data storage.

As a result of recent growth of the wireless market, research and development in antenna technology is growing at a fast pace. New emerging technologies include antennas for cellular mobile communications, vehicle mounted antennas and those for mobile satellite communications. This text is intended to introduce new engineers and undergraduates to the topic of antennas. It is a well-paced, low level introduction to the subject that does not require previous knowledge of electromagnetic theory. In addition, the step by step approach to maths is ideal for those who do not have a good mathematical background. It provides a good introduction to the subject without being overly detailed and includes some non-core subjects to give the student a good overview of techniques
Offers an up-to-date description of modern multifunctional antenna systems and microwave components Compact multifunctional antennas are of great interest in the field of antennas and wireless communication systems, but there are few, if any, books available that fully explore the multifunctional concept. Divided into six chapters, Compact Multifunctional Antennas for Wireless Systems encompasses both the active and passive multifunctional antennas and components for microwave systems. It provides a systematic, valuable reference for antenna/microwave researchers and designers. Beginning with such novel passive components as antenna filters, antenna packaging covers, and balun filters, the book discusses various miniaturization techniques for the multifunctional antenna systems. In addition to amplifying and oscillating antennas, the book also covers design considerations for frequency- and pattern-reconfigurable antennas. The last chapter is dedicated to the field of solar cell integrated antennas. Inside, readers will find comprehensive chapters on: Compact Multifunctional Antennas in Microwave Wireless Systems Multifunctional Passive Integrated Antennas and Components Reconfigurable Antennas Receiving Amplifying Antennas Oscillating Antennas Solar cell integrated Antennas Aimed at professional engineers and researchers designing compact antennas for wireless applications, Compact Multifunctional Antennas for Wireless Systems will prove to be an invaluable tool.
