This book, now in its Second Edition, is primarily intended for the undergraduate and postgraduate students of electronics and communication, electronics and electrical and telecommunication engineering. It provides a thorough understanding of the fundamentals and applications of the subject.
The edition discusses the properties of several types of antennas such as dipoles, loop, Yagi-Uda, log-periodic, slot/DRA and microstrip antennas and also explains the phenomenon of wave propagation with emphasis on theory of operation and design procedures. It provides a comprehension of the principles of radiation and methods of excitation. The book also focuses on antenna measurements along with necessary requirements and different methods of measurement.
Written in an easy-to-understand manner, the text includes several illustrative examples. A large number of solved examples and exercise problems with varying difficulty levels are included to reinforce the theoretical understanding of concepts. The book also contains several objective-type questions in each chapter along with a Question Bank at the end of the book. The Appendices provide a rich source of information and expressions as well as design data.
