Compact multifunctional antennas for wireless systems

Book Description

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 System

  • 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.
