The book discusses basic and advanced concepts of microstrip antennas, including design procedure and recent applications. Book topics include discussion of arrays, spectral domain, high Tc superconducting microstrip antennas, optimization, multiband, dual and circular polarization, microstrip to waveguide transitions, and improving bandwidth and resonance frequency. Antenna synthesis, materials, microstrip circuits, spectral domain, waveform evaluation, aperture coupled antenna geometry and miniaturization are further book topics. Planar UWB antennas are widely covered and new dual polarized UWB antennas are newly introduced. Design of UWB antennas with single or multi notch bands are also considered. Recent applications such as, cognitive radio, reconfigurable antennas, wearable antennas, and flexible antennas are presented. The book audience will be comprised of electrical and computer engineers and other scientists well versed in microstrip antenna technology.
