Dr. Alejandro L. Borja received his MSc degree in telecommunication engineering and PhD degree from the Universidad Politécnica de Valencia, Valencia, Spain, in 2005 and 2009, respectively. From 2005 to 2006, he was with the Communication Group, University of Birmingham, where he was involved with the research and development of metamaterial-based antennas. He then joined, from 2007 to 2008, the Institut d’Électronique de Microélectronique et de Nanotechnologies (IEMN), Université des Sciences et Technologies de Lille 1; his research activity included the design of metamaterial-based structures with frequency-selective properties. Since 2009, he has been with the Departamento de Ingeniería Eléctrica, Electrónica, Automática y Comunicaciones, Universidad de Castilla-La Mancha, where he is an assistant lecturer. He has published more than 70 papers in peer-reviewed international journals and conference proceedings and frequently acts as a reviewer for several technical publications. His current research interests include EM metamaterials, substrate integrated waveguide devices, tunable structures, and their applications in microwave and millimeter-wave technologies.

Metamaterials have become one of the most important emerging technologies in the scientific community due to its unusual electromagnetic properties. Consequently, during the last years, a huge deal of efforts has been concentrated in order to design functional components and devices based on metamaterials for many potential applications. The main objective of this book is to present in-depth analysis of the theory, properties, and realizations of novel devices that could be integrated within modern and future communication systems. The book contains 11 chapters written by acknowledged experts, researchers, academics, and microwave engineers, providing comprehensive information and covering a wide range of topics on several aspects of microwaves and optics, including polarization conversion, asymmetric transmission, transmission lines, filters, plasmonic lenses, tunable metamaterials, light manipulation, absorbers, and antennas, among others. This book is suitable for scholars from large scientific domain and therefore given to engineers, scientists, graduates, and other interested professionals as a reference on these artificial materials of tomorrow.
