Wideband, Multiband, and Smart Reconfigurable Antennas for Modern Wireless Communications

Book Description

Modern society thrives on communication that is instant and available at all times, a constant exchange of information that encompasses everything from video streaming to GPS navigation. Experts even suggest that in the near future everything from our cars to our kitchen appliances will be connected to the internet, a feat that would not be possible without advanced wireless technology. Wideband, Multiband, and Smart Reconfigurable Antennas for Modern Wireless Communications showcases current trends and novel approaches in the design and analysis of the antennas that make wireless applications possible, while also identifying unique integration opportunities for antennas and wireless applications to work together. By featuring both theoretical and experimental approaches to integration, this book highlights specific design issues to assist a wide-range of readers including students, researchers, academics, and industry practitioners. This publication features chapters on a broad scope of topics including algorithms and antenna optimization, wireless infrastructure development, wireless applications of intelligent algorithms, antenna architecture, and antenna reconfiguration techniques.
