Antenna Theory: Analysis and Design by Constantine A. Balanis

By Constantine A. Balanis

Updated with colour and grey scale illustrations, a better half site housing supplementary fabric, and new sections overlaying contemporary advancements in antenna research and design

This booklet introduces the basic ideas of antenna thought and explains easy methods to practice them to the research, layout, and measurements of antennas. as a result of the number of tools of research and layout, and the various antenna buildings on hand, the functions lined during this publication are made to a few of the main easy and sensible antenna configurations. between those antenna configurations are linear dipoles; loops; arrays; broadband antennas; aperture antennas; horns; microstrip antennas; and reflector antennas. The textual content includes enough mathematical element to permit undergraduate and starting graduate scholars in electric engineering and physics to stick with the circulation of research and layout. Readers must have a uncomplicated wisdom of undergraduate electromagnetic thought, together with Maxwell’s equations and the wave equation, introductory physics, and differential and fundamental calculus.

  • Presents new sections on versatile and conformal bowtie, Vivaldi antenna, antenna miniaturization, antennas for cellular communications, dielectric resonator antennas, and scale modeling
  • Provides colour and grey scale figures and illustrations to raised depict antenna radiation characteristics
  • Includes entry to a better half site housing MATLAB courses, Java-based applets and animations, strength element notes, Java-based interactive questionnaires and a options guide for instructors
  • Introduces over a hundred extra end-of-chapter problems


Antenna thought: research and layout, Fourth version
is designed to satisfy the desires of senior undergraduate and starting graduate point scholars in electric engineering and physics, in addition to working towards engineers and antenna designers.

Constantine A. Balanis bought his BSEE measure from the Virginia Tech in 1964, his MEE measure from the collage of Virginia in 1966, his PhD in electric Engineering from The Ohio nation collage in 1969, and an Honorary Doctorate from the Aristotle collage of Thessaloniki in 2004. From 1964 to 1970, he was once with the NASA Langley learn middle in Hampton, VA, and from 1970 to 1983, he used to be with the dep. of electric Engineering of West Virginia collage. In 1983 he joined Arizona country collage and is now Regents' Professor of electric Engineering. Dr. Balanis is additionally a existence fellow of the IEEE.

Infinite Line Source in a PEC Square Cylinder (tm box) This problem is simulated similarly as that of the line source in an unbounded medium, including the characteristics of the pulse. The major difference is that the computational domain of this problem is truncated by PEC walls; therefore there is no need for CURRENT DISTRIBUTION ON A THIN WIRE ANTENNA 17 PML ABC. For this problem the pulse travels in an outward direction and is reflected when it reaches the walls of the cylinder. The reflected pulse along with the radially outward traveling pulse interfere constructively and destructively with each other and create a standing type of a wavefront.
