Edited Books

  • Wave Propagation Concepts for Near-Future Telecommunication Systems

    Wave Propagation Concepts for Near-Future Telecommunication Systems is an edited book discussing recent researches for the development of innovative telecommunication systems, with particular focus on the propagation aspects and radiating systems design. It is divided into two sections: Section 1, devoted to the illustration of advanced results in terms of microwave propagation at high operating frequencies, and Section 2, illustrating new electromagnetic concepts and applications.

  • Microwave Materials Characterization

    Microwave Materials Characterization is an edited book discussing recent researches on basic and innovative measurement techniques for the characterization of materials at microwave frequencies, in terms of quantitative determination of their electromagnetic parameters, namely the complex permittivity and permeability. It is divided into two parts: Part 1, including original contributions on advanced techniques for the characterization of dielectric materials, and Part 2, devoted to the microwave characterization of biological tissues.
