Main description

Edited by one of the world’s foremost authorities on smart antennas, this is the most modern technical text on antenna design and engineering.

Frontiers in Antennas covers the latest advances in antenna design and engineering. Each chapter explores a different unique and modern antenna technology, including: plasma antennas, fractal antennas, fractal arrays, Vivaldi arrays, fragmented patch arrays, smart antennas, artificial impedance surfaces (or EBG structures), metamaterial antennas, genetic/neural network/ant colony optimized antennas, reconfigurable antennas, fabric/body worn antennas, small antennas, leaky wave antennas, and recent advances in EM modeling codes. Each chapter is written by a global leading expert and the book is edited by Dr. Frank Gross, contributor to the Antenna Engineering Handbook and one of the world’s foremost authorities on smart antennas.

Frontiers in Antennas:

  • Is the first compilation of cutting-edge, modern antenna developments and the first book to cover plasma antennas
  • Features contributions from global experts in the field
  • Offers relevant Matlab code examples free for download
