Ultra Wideband Antennas: Design, Methodologies, and Performance presents the current state of the art of ultra wideband (UWB) antennas, from theory specific for these radiators to guidelines for the design of omnidirectional and directional UWB antennas. Offering a comprehensive overview of the latest UWB antenna research and development, this book:Discusses the developed theory for UWB antennas in frequency and time domainsDelivers a brief exposition of numerical methods for electromagnetics oriented to antennasDescribes solid-planar equivalence, which allows flat structures to be implemented instead of volumetric antennasExamines the impedance matching, phase linearity, and radiation patterns as design objectives for omnidirectional and directional antennasAddresses the time domain signal analysis for UWB antennas, from which the distortion phenomenon can be modeledIncludes illustrative examples, design equations, CST MICROWAVE STUDIO ® simulations, and MATLAB ® plot generationsCompares the performance of different UWB antennas, supplying useful insight into particular tendencies and unresolved problems
Ultra Wideband Antennas: Design, Methodologies, and Performance provides a valuable reference for the scientific community, as UWB antennas have a variety of applications in body area networks, radar, imaging, spectrum monitoring, electronic warfare, wireless sensor networks, and more.

"The topic of ultra wideband antennas continues to be of vital interest to the commercial and defense communities. The ever-increasing demand for wider bandwidths, while retaining compact size, will assure that books on this topic will continue to proliferate. I highly recommend that Ultra Wideband Antennas: Design, Methodologies, and Performance be a critical adjunct to every antenna designer's library."
-Frank B. Gross, Georgia Southern University, Statesboro, USA
"This is an outstanding reference with practical design formulas for a wide variety of useful ultra wideband (UWB) elements. This guidance helps an antenna engineer implement a near-optimal design quickly, minimizing the time required to tweak or adjust the design. This work should be on the shelf of anyone interested in rapid implementation of UWB and broadband antenna designs."
-Hans G. Schantz, Q-Track Corporation, Huntsville, Alabama, USA
