About the Authors
  • If you are involved in designing and developing small antennas, this complete, cutting-edge guide covers everything you need to know. From fundamentals and basic theory to design optimization, evaluation, measurements and simulation techniques, all the essential information is included. You will also get many practical examples from a range of wireless systems, whilst a glossary is provided to bring you up to speed on the latest terminology. A wide variety of small antennas is covered, and design and practice steps are described for each type: electrically small, functionally small, physically constrained small and physically small. Whether you are a professional in industry, a researcher, or a graduate student, this is your essential guide to small antennas.

    Reviews & endorsements

    "At last: an approachable book addressing small antennas and their design … This book addresses the very important area of small antennas with both the theory and a lot of useful practical design information … Modern Small Antennas helps by providing not only the background theory, but also the practical implementation including: basic theory and fundamentals; design optimization; evaluation; measurements; and simulation techniques."
    Ian Poole,

    "A comprehensive glossary provides about forty pages of catalogued small antennas with references back to where they are introduced in the text. This feature greatly enhances the usefulness of the book as there are so many different types, styles and shapes of antennas discussed … Modern Small Antennas is a book that would be very handy for just about any designer of small or covert wireless communications, video, data, tag, security and sensor devices. The book cites many examples and the authors include extensive references … I subscribe to a couple of internet sites (blogs) that address antenna issues. Many of the contemporary questions asked would conveniently be answered if the inquirer had this book in his or her possession."
    Tom Perkins, High Frequency Electronics
