Book Description

The book presents an engineering approach for the development of metamaterials and metasurfaces with emphasis on application in antennas. It offers an in-depth study, performance analysis and extensive characterization on different types of metamaterials and metasurfaces. Practical examples included in the book will help readers to enhance performance of antennas and also develop metamaterial-based absorbers for a variety of applications.

Key Features

  • Provides background for design and development of metamaterial structures using novel unit cells
  • Gives in-depth performance study of miniaturization of microstrip antennas
  • Discusses design and development of both transmission and reflection types, metasurfaces and their practical applications.
  • Verifies a variety of Metamaterial structures and Metasurfaces experimentally

The target audience of this book is postgraduate students and researchers involved in antenna designs. Researchers and engineers interested in enhancing the performance of the antennas using metamaterials will find this book extremely useful. The book will also serve as a good reference for developing artificial materials using metamaterials and their practical applications.
