The abible of antenna engineeringa fully updated to provide state-of-the-art coverage in antenna design and applications Edited by John L. Volakis, one of the world's leading authorities in antenna engineering, this trusted resource covers all the classic antenna types plus many new types and designs used in communications systems, satellites, radars, and emerging applications from WLAN to automotive systems to biomedical to smart antennas. You will also find expert discussion of topics critical to successful antenna design and engineering, such as measurement techniques and computational methods, a materials guide, wave propagation basics, microwave circuits, and matching techniques, as well as diversity and MIMO propagation models, frequency selective surfaces, and metamaterials. Packed with 1, 500 illustrations, the 4th Edition of Antenna Engineering Handbook presents: Step-by-step guidance on most antennas (modern and classic) 59 chapters with 21 new chapters and 38 fully updated chapters from the previous edition Contributions from over 80 well-known antenna experts Full-color insert illustrating many commercial and military antennas Get Quick Access to All of Today's Cutting-Edge Antennas ac Printed and Conformal Antennas ac Wideband Patch Antennas ac Wideband Arrays ac Leaky-Wave Antennas ac EBG Antennas ac UWB Antennas and Arrays ac Portable TV Antennas ac Reconfigurable Antennas ac Active Antennas ac Millimeter Wave and TeraHertz Antennas ac Fractal Antennas ac Handset and Terminal Antennas ac Biomedical Antennas ac ECM and ESM antennas ac Dielectric Resonator Antennas ac Lens Antennas ac Radiometer Antennas ac Satellite Antennas ac Reflector and Earth Station Antennas ac and Dozens More!These so-called Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) systems involve the combination of antenna arrays, sophisticated signal processing, and wave propagation. ... Various propagation effects, such as the reflection of electromagnetic waves at walls, occur depending on the environment ... One major question is figuring out the ways that multiple antennas should be positioned for uncorrelated reception.
