Modern Antenna Handbook (0470036346) cover image
The most up-to-date, comprehensive treatment of classical and modern antennas and their related technologies

Modern Antenna Handbook represents the most current and complete thinking in the field of antennas. The handbook is edited by one of the most recognizable, prominent, and prolific authors, educators, and researchers on antennas and electromagnetics. Each chapter is authored by one or more leading international experts and includes cover-age of current and future antenna-related technology. The information is of a practical nature and is intended to be useful for researchers as well as practicing engineers.

From the fundamental parameters of antennas to antennas for mobile wireless communications and medical applications, Modern Antenna Handbook covers everything professional engineers, consultants, researchers, and students need to know about the recent developments and the future direction of this fast-paced field.

In addition to antenna topics, the handbook also covers modern technologies such as metamaterials, microelectromechanical systems (MEMS), frequency selective surfaces (FSS), and radar cross sections (RCS) and their applications to antennas, while five chapters are devoted to advanced numerical/computational methods targeted primarily for the analysis and design of antennas.

Constantine A. Balanis received his BSEE degree from Virginia Tech in 1964, his MEE degree from the University of Virginia in 1966, his PhD in electrical engineering from Ohio State University in 1969, and an honorary doctorate from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece. He worked with the NASA Langley Research Center in Hampton, Virginia, before joining the Department of Electrical Engineering at West Virginia University in 1970. Since 1983, he has been with Arizona State University, where he is now Regents' Professor of Electrical Engineering. Dr. Balanis is a Life Fellow of the IEEE and the author of Antenna Theory: Analysis and Design and Advanced Engineering Electromagnetics, both published by Wiley, and Introduction to Smart Antennas.
