Written by a leading expert in the field, this practical new resource presents the fundamentals of electromagnetics and antenna technology. This book covers the design, electromagnetic simulation, fabrication, and measurements for various types of antennas, including impedance matching techniques and beamforming for ultrawideband dipoles, monopoles, loops, vector sensors for direction finding, HF curtain arrays, 3D printed nonplanar patch antenna arrays, waveguides for portable radar, reflector antennas, and other antennas. It explores the essentials of phased array antennas and includes detailed derivations of important field equations, and a detailed formulation of the method of moments.
This resource exhibits essential derivations of equations, providing readers with a strong foundation of the underpinnings of electromagnetics and antennas. It includes a complete chapter on the details of antenna and electromagnetic test and measurement. This book explores details on 3D printed non-planar circular patch array antenna technology and the design and analysis of a planar array-fed axisymmetric gregorian reflector. The lumped-element impedance matched antennas are examined and include a look at an analytic impedance matching solution with a parallel LC network. This book provides key insight into many aspects of antenna technology that have broad applications in radar and communications.
