Abstract / Description

Limited space is given to antennas in modern portable wireless systems, which means that antennas need to be small in size and compact structures. However, shrinkage of conventional antennas leads to performance degradation and complex mechanical assembly. Therefore, the design of miniature antennas for application in wireless communication systems is highly challenging using traditional means. In this chapter, it is shown that metamaterial (MTM) technology offers a solution to synthesize antennas with a small footprint with the added advantage of low cost and excellent radiation characteristics.
