Low-visibility Antennas for Communication SystemseBook - 2015
& Francis Publishing
Low-visibility antennas have many attractive features, such as being low-profile, flexible, lightweight, small-volume, and low-cost. Low-Visibility Antennas for Communication Systems provides explicit guidelines for the development of these antennas. Offering valuable insight into emerging antenna technologies, the book:
- Introduces the fundamental theory of electromagnetics and antennas with few integral and differential equations, improving accessibility while providing sufficient mathematical detail
- Presents state-of-the-art advancements in microstrip, millimeter (mm) wave microstrip, wearable, wearable tunable printed, wideband wearable meta-material, and fractal printed antennas
- Discusses microwave integrated circuits (MICs), monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs), micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS), and low temperature co-fired ceramics (LTCC)
Low-Visibility Antennas for Communication Systems delivers a comprehensive and cutting-edge study of the design and application of low-visibility antennas, complete with design considerations, computed and measured results, and an extensive exploration of radio frequency and antenna measurements.
After introducing electrical engineers and undergraduate students to basic electromagnetic and antenna theory and fundamentals with few integral and differential equations, Sabban discusses the design of low-visibility antennas. His topics include electromagnetic theory and transmission lines, low-visibility printed antennas, antenna array, applications of low-visibility printed antennas, wearable antennas for communication and medical applications, wearable tunable printed antennas for medical applications, new wideband wearable meta-material antennas for communication applications, fractal printed antennas, and radio frequency measurements.
