This proposed book focuses on the design and development of printed antennas along with modeling aspects for multifaceted applications. It further investigates imperfections in the manufacturing processes and assembly operation during the testing/characterization of printed antennas.
- Discusses in a comprehensive manner the design and development aspects of printed antennas.
- Provides fractal engineering aspects for miniaturization and wideband characteristics of the low-profile antenna with high performances.
- Covers high gain printed antenna for Terahertz application.
- Showcases electrical modeling of smart antennas.
- Pedagogical features such as review questions based on practical experiences are included at the end of each chapter.
The book comprehensively discusses fractal engineering in printed antennas for miniaturization and enhancement of performance factors. It further covers the modeling of electrically small antennas, circuit modeling, modeling of factual-based Ultra-Wide Band antennas, and modeling of reconfigurable micro-electromechanical system-based patch antennas. The book highlights performance metrics of multiple-input-multiple-output antennas. It will serve as an ideal reference text for senior undergraduate, graduate students, and academic researchers in fields including electrical engineering, electronics, communications engineering, and computer engineering.
