Description

Multifunctional Antennas (MFA) are comparatively a new area for antenna research and finds applications in various modern wireless radios, like Cognitive Radio (CR) in Software Defined Radio (SDR) technology and MIMO technology. This book is first attempt and an invaluable resource which deals with the design and realization of various kinds of multifunctional antennas. After clearly explaining the exclusive features of MFAs, the book presents various designs of such antennas considering versatile modern and upcoming applications.

Written by three internationally known researchers, Multi-Functional Ultra Wideband Antennas: Trends, Techniques and Applications:

  • Provides a lucid introduction on UWB systems, historical perspective and discusses various applications of such systems
  • Discusses fundamentals of antennas and its characterization in time and frequency domains, primarily aimed for the beginners in the area
  • Revisits the design and realization of various classical UWB antennas
  • Discusses various techniques of designing frequency-notched UWB antennas and provide detailed comparison of the techniques
  • Deals with the techniques of deriving multiple antenna functionalities from a single antenna
  • Incorporates exclusive discussions on modern reconfigurable antennas and printed and dielectric resonator based MIMO antennas with clear focus on recent and upcoming technological requirements

With Multi-Functional Ultra Wideband Antennas: Trends, Techniques and Applications, antenna engineers, communication system engineers, graduate students, academic/industry researchers will gain a thorough knowledge on design of such antennas with clear physical insight and understanding.
